Foolish Girl

Foolish girl I am
Thinking I knew everything
When really
I knew nothing at all.

Foolish girl I am
Feeling too much than I should
Then again
How could I have not.

Foolish girl I am
Of ideas and bright, bold colours
I forgot
Life is not a dream.

Foolish girl I am
Desperately clinging to
Remnants of
Her naive, foolish self.

A foolish girl, I am.


"Something's lost but something's gained in living every day.

I've looked at life from both sides now,
From win and lose, and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall.
I really don't know life at all."

- Both Sides Now , Joni Mitchell
