There once was a girl
She wanted to become a lawyer
And as she grew older
Each step she took got her closer
To her heart's sole desire.
As dreams do come true
So did hers,and she took her oath
She went on to fight in court
With fervent ardor
Wearing only the best of suits and stilettos.
Each time she walked into a courtroom
She stepped into a magical world of her own
For many years, the law's complexities
And intellectual challenges kept her
Spellbound and mesmerized to no end.
And then somewhere along the way
Suddenly the law that she faithfully
Served and loved
Seemed distant and impossible.
And so, she took on the road
That led her to another path
She took a turn that would lead her far, far away
From the world that she used to know
It all just seemed meaningless.
But not far into the new journey
She opened her eyes and saw
That she was in a strange world
Where nothing seemed right
No matter how hard she tried.
She felt so lost and alone
Her spark of life begun to flicker
Then it dawned on her
When she took that sudden turn
She left her heart behind.
