strong and confident. Like someone who didn't fully understand how utterly broken the world can make you.

(1) How she stood up;

by letspretend

It wasn't intentional. It just happened.

The first time she stood up was when she was born. It wan't intentional, she didn't plan for it to happen, it just did.

She was fierce.

The second time she stood was when she was introduced to the world for the first time. She cried when it happened, but that made it all the more special.

Her little body standing up like that.

She wasn't afraid or uncomfortable, the opposite in fact. She was yelling at the world.

Then she promised.

As if to say; i'm here, and i'll be hard to be knocked down. Because by the mere fact that she was alive at this very moment; she was challenging the world and dared it to tear her down.
