Evolution

When I was a little girl,

I thought that everything was in BLACK and WHITE.

Adults were my hero’s, and books my safe haven.

I didn’t understand much then, but I knew this:

Do as your told. I always did.

When the other kids called me names,

when I got pushed around on the playground,

even when my “friends” stabbed me in the back,

I did as I was told,

and remained,

SILENT.

When I left childhood behind,

not much changed.

Except ONE thing.

I didn’t have to be SILENT.

I could finally be MYSELF.

My only friends wouldn’t be my family or teachers.

I could be ME.

Life stopped being in BLACK and WHITE.

It was like I was transported to OZ.

I was reborn, yet not.

Because I’m still ME.

Books are still my safe haven, adults are still my hero’s,

but I know so much more now.

I don’t have to blend into the crowd,

or stay quiet.

I can be LOUD, PROUD, and …

ME!

Laraine Smith: My only suggestion on the grammar is to use www.grammarcheck.net. I have it bookmarked on Google Chrome. I see myself in the determination in this beautiful story! I have Cerebral Palsy, and I have dreams that I have been working hard for, too! The humor made me laugh!

preety_lady_serenity: I really liked the poem. It created this picture of a baroque style cafe that you kind of enter it to feel relaxed and yet you feel trapped due to outside circumstances.I especially loved the writing style, If one looks at it, it does look like a birdcage which is an excellent image to fit the po...
