Growing Up Poem by Teens

Poem About No Longer Being A Little Girl

I'm nearly 16 years old, and I'm losing the love and trust with my family. Going through a lot of things...having an 18-year-old boyfriend, who I've been with for 8 months. I smoke and drink. But overall I'm really smart and am aiming to finish year 12. I just wish my life slowed down a bit. I grew up too fast and my parents want their little girl back.

Growing Up Too Fast


Published by Family Friend Poems June 2015 with permission of the Author.

It seems for the future I am prepared,
but the thought of commitment is getting me scared.
These feelings I feel, they're different, they're new...
being loved and adored is the reason my confidence grew.
I feel like his love is helping me cope,
I'm worried if he leaves me I can't stand on my own.
I'm forgetting my family, the child I used to be...
hurting them by fighting for the one I want to see.
Taking bigger steps every chance I get
is making me worry that I'll look back with regret.
Young by age, matured in the mind...
the little girl they want back is hard to find.
