was very quiet.
Everyone would comment about how shy and quiet she was.
Really she was more an introvert than shy.
And though she was quiet, it was more that she was observant.
She watched everything and everyone around her.
She learned that being quiet was a good thing,
though, most people seemed not to think so.
She learned that people seemed to think quiet meant;
docile, manageable, submissive.
But she knew it meant;
insightful, perceptive, ingenious.
What people didn’t know about her was that
she was rebellious.
The little girl was not a wild and crazy kind of rebellious.
Her rebellion was determined and shrewd,
but still reckless and bold.
When she would get a bit older her rebellion would become
more obvious and startling to those around her.
But she was always true to herself.
She was a quiet rebel.
