I watched little Ashley sitting astride the broom,
Pretending to be a witch who only does good,
In her imagination, she is someone very noble,
A heroine who treats everyone as she should.
In her young mind, she is fearless and strong,
Seeing simple solutions to her problems.
Never magnifying troubles, as do the adults,
Which makes it so much easier to solve them.
Oh, to see life from the angle of a child,
Believing that we can accomplish great things.
Then, maybe our troubles wouldn’t seem so huge,
And what peace and tranquility that would bring!
