Poetry: The Transition

Teenage is that time in life when many things change, the world looks a new place and one sees himself/herself differently.  

Teenage is that time in life when many things change, the world looks a new place and one sees himself/herself differently.  

I woke up as a teen,
Tiny pimples on my face were easily seen.
A cute little girl I have always been.
But, today I bid goodbye to my pre-teen.

I am now anxious to hit puberty,
And wondering if I will have a lot more liberty?
I Still fancy boy bands and chocolate bars,
But, I am no longer scared of bruises and scars.

To get what I want, I would usually cry,
To ask what I need, I am no longer shy.
I now think in a practical way,
When things matter, I Will ALWAYS have a say.

I also realize transition is my constant mate,
It will surprise and shock me at a consistent rate.
Now, I am a new girl, Young and smart
The cute little one will always be a part.

Happy Thirteenth Birthday to ME.
