People don't care much now

A few years pass and the girl is older

The world is a bit smaller

She still doesn't talk right

She still doesn't look right

She still doesn't act right

Two other little girls talk to her

Time escapes us yet again

She is older and intelligence is all that counts

She talks better, but not right still
