Growing up Poem by Hannah Olson


A child.
So pure and clean
Shimmering with innocence
Never afraid to laugh
But terrified to grow up
To lose the admiring childhood
of beautiful days with imaginary fantasies
But soon, you will lose it.
It will all just be a few
Memories.
At times so small
But always sweet and unique
A timeless history,
Impossible to forget.

    Wow... This is a great poem. It reminds me of those people that say YOLO all the time. You know.., that You Only Live Once thing...It's a good thing if it reminds me of that in this case. Well, your poem shows how you shouldn't waste time no matter how young you are-how much time you seem to have left because that Shimmering... innocence can be gone anytime. It's a good lesson you teach there. Well done! :) (Report) Reply
