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!

Makayla Danielle Waits: Just finished one of the most amazing books I have ever read. I connected to it in a way I can't quite put to words. It was as if this person was speaking to me, and me only. Telling me her stories and struggles and how this person handled them and how they worked or how they kept trying; but all...

Richard D. Cooper: I wish I could write poetry like this. It's clever because it also tells a story, too. I like the flow of it, the way sentences slip together as they should. Very good indeed. I have also started to read your others works, and will review them when finished. Keep going. Never stop.

LunasChild8: Greetings Earthling,This is a very beautiful poem that you have written, Steve Waldrop. The words you've used to describe the peaceful settings made your poem very pleasant to read. Thanks for sharing it here!
