Beyond the Island
Her untamed, sun-kissed light brown hair flew with the wind,
her large doe eyes widened,
her powdered freckles creased.
She embodied the spirit of the island,
the volcanoes a spitting image of her fiery aura.
She longed for the world beyond the island,
wanting to soak in the glittering sights and cities
and to escape the simplicity of a planned life.
She wanted to teach others of her tattoos, traditions, and people.
She wanted to leave so she could come back.
