When I Was A Child - Poem by Charlotte Ballard

When I was a child
I thought I wanted to
Be a Warrior Princess
Like Zena and other
Unnamed Amazons
I practiced being noble
And kind, under the worst
circumstances, giving
bread to the hungry
letting wisdom drip
from my fingers like honeyed
wine, As I got older
I noticed that nobody else did
I have become like
Everyone around me
Yet this is as true as the first was.
Which is better?
