to understand this poem, you must start reading it at humble. the girl in
the poem is seen as a humble and quiet person. the next stanza explains
what she feels on the inside. she lives in noworld and she is sad because
she is silent. when the girl is asleep (inside the parenthesis) she dreams
of being a person larger than herself. she sees herself as a new person,
girlgold, someone worthy of something. she still feels small, but larger of
smallsih, and feels powerful, despite the fact that her power is of people
like herself. thats basically the idea.
