Wednesday Words: Growing Up

I was ambling through twitter posts when I cam across the Zusterschap twitter. I immediately went onto their blog to find out this month’s theme so I could ponder for a few days before submitting an article, but, something came to me instantly. Over the next half an hour I wrote a little poem that I quite like so thought I would share with you.

I will be submitting a blog post to the brilliant Zusterschap in good time, but for now I leave you with this little aptly named piece.

Growing Up

I.
Growing up is finding yourself when you never thought you were lost


Growing up is taking control no matter what the cost


Growing up is seeing your reflection and realising upon inspection


That growing up is nothing more than dignified deflection 



II.
Growing up is looking down and counting lucky stars 


Growing up is over our heads and rationing our hearts


Growing up can never dream, with even sleep a thoughtless stream


Growing up is nothing more than a weary child the world made sore



III.
Growing up is taking us to places undiscovered


Growing up is saying no despite the will of others 


Growing up is not so bad, makes sense when you believe


That growing up is nothing more than all the years you’ve seen


Walking hand in hand throughout the life you’re yet to lead.
