Signifying Something

We all have times in our lives where we feel small, insufficient, and ignored. Where no matter how much we fight to be heard, we are left wanting. Being a child is that feeling all of the time. Your presence is known, but not given much respect. We learn to lash out, yell, scream, and make as much noise as possible to announce to the world that we will be heard. So unlike he who would be King hereafter, my sound is fury because it is new. And as I grow my voice will become as I intend it now - signifying my presence and determination.

Chin up, little one, you have many to-morrows and to-morrows to come on which to stage your furies. Soon enough, they will beg you to be quiet for just a moment so they can have some peace. But invoke the small but mighty spirit of Miss Kate - strut on, my friend. Strut on.
