A little girl swings back and forth on a swing.
She uses her legs to get high up in the air.
The beauty and view of the sky lights up her eyes.
But she slowly goes down like she is trying to hide.
She jumps off the swing and stands afraid.
The little girl doesn't believe she deserves to see the beauty.
So she runs away.
As she stands there the swing keeps waiting for her to come back,
But she pushes the swing away and moves up.
She has lost the chance to face her fear and a friend.
For the swing in her life was her friend Tommie who always wanted her to go up higher.
