Just yesterday, I was a young child
So innocent and helpless
Unaware about the ways of the world
So naive and carefree
What would the masses make of me?

Having to grow up in a world so cold
Trying to avoid obstacles
That would alter my straight path
Am I even headed in the right direction?
How will I know which road to take?
Having difficulty finding myself
Sometimes I wish I could escape

Maturity is becoming more of me
Physically I possess the physique of a woman
Exposing more curves than a back road
Mentally I have developed
Into an intelligent individual
Evading troubles by using good judgement
A true survivor of my regiment

Just yesterday, I was a young child
Today I am a woman
Taking charge of my life
Raising my family right
Being a mother,sister
Aunt and niece
To those who are less fortunate
And have no guidance
I promise to lead those under me
In the right direction for an eternity

I must say your over-night transformation was a good one which inspired a good poem. We must all strive to find our direction and it looks like your on the right path.  good luck.

Thank You Preach, sometimes it is difficult to stay on the right path when there are so many distratctions around you, I have learned to stay focused so that no one can distract me, and I try the youth headed in the right direction for they only know if we tell them. I feel deeply about this poem because there are many children that lack direction and it isn't even their own fault. Parents, Adults, Elders need to communicate with the youth
