Lost Stories (2)

At eight years old, a dynamo: 
A Supergirl, a CEO, 
A scientist, a diplomat, 
An artist and an acrobat -- 

At eighteen, still, a power plant: 
A lioness, a Federal grant, 
A lover and a covert spy, 
A reason and an alibi -- 

At twenty-eight, a marvel yet, 
An adjective, an epithet, 
A story told uproarious, 
A work-in-progress glorious 

She dreamed her life then lived her dreams, 
A hidden place behind what seems, 
But all-in-all the good outweighs 
The shadows in 

Her yesterdays
