A little girl navigates life,
while gaining tools to conquer strife,
learning great lessons everyday,
she gains new ones along the way.
When a harsh patch is driving near,
her inner guides always appear,
with strong gadgets within her shed,
their wise advice erase all dread.
Wipes away rough edges she meets,
saws off the tough parts, being sweet.
Some people can be tough as nails,
her hammer shines so ego sails.
Those dense as wood still see her light,
she sharpens minds with her insight.
Carves out sorrows, so peace can soothe,
sands sorrows down to make days smooth.
Vinegar soaks remove old rust,
true empathy inspires trust.
A smile could melt a solid heart,
torched by affection from the start.
Powerful gloves protect her hands,
sacred pure touch lets love expand.
Kindness and warmth flow through her core,
affects that link forever more.
