Dedicated to the person who asked me to do a "Happy" child poem. Most of my poems are about child abuse. On the lighter side here's a poem on a happy child....

Little girl in the mirror
Are you really me?
I feel like I’m living out
A real life fantasy
Back an forth to different
Homes since I was four
Mama had left me
She didn’t want me no more

Different faces, different lives
Never was the same
Every home was different
No one was to blame
I just wasn’t happy
Didn’t matter where I’d go
My heart was busy searching
For what I didn’t know

A month ago I moved again
But I dared not hope
If anything I’d learned
To manage and to cope
Slowly I begin to smile
My heart started to melt
Love gently washed away
All the bad feelings I’d felt

Now a smiling face
Is staring back at me
I never knew how beautiful
Life could be
“Mama” gives me hugs and kisses
“Daddy” gives them too
I’m living out a dream
Can this be true

My own room , my own friends
I even like my school
Sometimes I have sleepovers
That is so cool
The little girl in me
Don't hide anymore
Thank you God for giving me
All I had prayed for

Little girl in the mirror
Are you really me
I feel like I’m living out
A real life fantasy
