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.

chariethomas7: I love the plot line on how it's not just how Elizabeth has to deal the her lover but her ex husband and child. I personally scared that she would get caught with her child but not Ben. I would love if this story can continue. The ending is making me want more.
