Growing Up! - Poem by Vonda Overlie

If I could look into your past perhaps I'd understand.
You stayed guarded.

I wanted so badly for you to share your heart.
You allowed only glimpses of your pain.

I held you as if you were the child.
Comforting, encouraging, stroking your hair.

Now a mother,
I realize, you still felt a little girl.
For I have layed in my daugters arms, and was comforted.

I wear this uniform.
My girls think me
Super faith.
Super Prayer.
Super Everything.
Inside I feel I pulled one off.
For I am that little girl, who has learned lessons in life.
I have earned this.
I listened Daddy,
I listened Mommy.
I did what I was told.
I learned from your mistakes.
Thank you for walking that road for me.
I will not travel it.
You came back and told me of the paths destruction!
I will be thankful.
I will be content!
Even if I walk alone!
