    • Ginger: (Reading her poem)

      She chose to walk alone
      Though others wondered why
      Refused to look before her,
      Kept eyes cast upwards,
      Towards the sky.-

      She didn't have companions
      No need for earthly things.
      Only wanted freedom,
      From what she felt were
      Puppet strings.-

      She longed to be a bird. That she might fly away.
      She pitied every blade of grass
      For planted they would stay.-

      She longed to be a flame,
      That brightly danced alone.
      Felt jealous of the steam
      That made the air its only home.-

      Some say she wished too hard.
      Some say she wished too long.
      But we awoke one autumn day
      To find that she was gone..-

      The trees, they say stood witness.
      The sky refused to tell.
      But someone who had seen it said
      The story played out well.-

      She spread her arms out wide.
      Breathed in the break of dawn.
      She just let go of all she held...-

      And then she was gone.
