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!

crissy: Awesome work. The characters are so beautifully flawed and easy to relate to. The protagonist Bethany Hill is a woman that I would definitely want to meet in real life. The author has managed to make me visualize the story like a movie. The two time frames of past and present are also so beautifu...

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...

K.J. Sylvan: This was a quick read but worth it. I loved the writer's portrayal of the dual aspects of snow: good and evil, softness and ill intent, and that beauty can be deceiving. It's like the softness of a snowfall versus how harsh or dangerous an ice storm can be. I feel as though certain lines of the p...

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.

Lykeios: I'm not sure what else I can say about this poem.I enjoyed it because it made me feel things. The depth and meaning here was impressive. As I read it I could remember how it feels to lose love. However, there is something hopeful in losing love as I've learned that there is always more love to fi...
