Inspired from the classic To kill the
mockingbird by Harper Lee, in which this lovely songbird symbolizes virtue and
innocence. Since I was a child, Atticus's warning “it's a sin to
kill a mockingbird” has been cherished in my heart. This piece
is created as an alert for adolescent girls who have been forcing themselves to be adults in inconsiderable ways (like wearing too
much make up, revealing clothes or proving to be adult-like by
turning themselves into cheap items).
