My first semi poem
When I was young I was told I could reach the sky, but I feel short.

When I was young my mother would tell me some day I would grow into a pretty girl, but one day I want to change that preset fate.

When I was young I was scared and weak. now when i see myself as a battered and dazed young person.

When i was young i never pictured growing up like I did. I grew up to be a crazy, tormented teen who has the weight of the world on her shoulders.

When I grow up I will be strong, I will be stable, I will be myself.
But for now I continue to be the person I was above all. Unsteady. Unwanted. A warrior if you will.
