Growing Pains
Author: Catyrose


I never meant to hurt you
You must believe its true
Yet lately I have come to see that I am worthy too
So many years now Iíve held the pain inside
Afraid to speak my mind
Always trying to be kind
Iím grateful for the good times
Yet I cannot dismiss
The subtle jabs
The lies and underhanded tricks
I know it may not be conscious
Yet it hurts all the same
Iím searching for a life filled with far less pain
I thank you for the lessons,I have learned
I hope youíll understand
It was finally time to live life
On my own terms

This is a touching read! I truly know moving on can be very hard, but there are times we must travel forward, and not look back. The first step is always the hardest. GREAT POEM!
