Authors note: This poem was written for the beginning of a novel, ( as yet untitled), my daughter is penning!  Can you tell how thrilled I am that she is writing?!

When once a tale, twas never told

A child was brought into the fold

Always knowing she was special

Unaware she was, of her inner devil

With powers to make the bold collapse

And let the meek fight back, perhaps

Elders let her find her way, never letting go

Of the magic, watching it take its course

Til it was time to let her know

Yes, the feelings she held, dark, inside her

Would open her heart, and guide her

To the wonders she would finally find

The ones she has hidden, deep in her mind
