Growing Up
By: Ashley Raquel Wilson

You are a glowing light brought from the heavens
I am a pill masking what fate has forced me to do
You are unbeknownst to pain and sorrow
I am a pool of memories and flashbacks
You are untouched from betrayal and heartache
I am alone forced to miss what’s been lost
You are free to imagine what can be
I am imprisoned to remember what was
You are the child with in
I am the adult forced to grow up
You were me
I am what you've become


MVP-Most Valuable Poet

powerful poem that sends a powerful msg about how one mirrors off someone

what was said, taught, from the beginning of time has shaped any person to be who one is

alot of it is based on the foundation at the household

keep writing-enjoy the poem
