I am a child
Loved by all;
Scared and shy of life;
Bursting with new knowledge;
Longing to be a woman.

I am a teenager
Infatuated with myself;
Exploring life;
Experiencing new loves;
Longing to be a woman.

I am a woman
Caring for no one;
Dealing with harshness;
Turned bitter and frigid;
Longing to be a child.

This poem is so true, we always want the other that we're not. Thanks for sharing this, I enjoyed it.

I enjoyed your perspective here. There are those moments, I think, when every woman wants again to be a child, free to play and pretend, to be protected and cared for,  nurtured and cherished just for being who she is. I believe it comes from our knowing, as women, how to do these things for others, and understanding what a safe and glorious feeling that type of care can evoke.

Wonderful poem, thank you!
