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
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
