This was written after a reflective time in my life. I was beginning to understand that adulthood was only around the corner, but I felt that nobody else my age understood.

Seeking Adulthood


Published: March 2011

I'm getting older now,
No longer a child,
Not yet an adult,
But a girl trying to carve a path for herself

I'm learning to make my own choices,
Molding a future with my bare hands,
Learning how to step out,
Despite the shaky ground

I no longer need to be held tight in your embrace,
But crave an independence,
One that lets me explore my hunger for this world,
A world full of hidden meanings

But sometimes I fall,
As I struggle to take in the world before me,
Overwhelmed by the bigger picture,
The adulthood that lays ahead

And it must be hard for you to accept,
That I'm building a life for myself,
Making mistakes that you cannot cure,
Choices you never dreamed I'd make
