Growing Up - Poem by Tatiana Guerrier

It's like a seed growing into a flower
Or a caterpillar becoming a butterfly
Its so lovely to watch

Well, it's the same concept for
babies growing up into an adult

As you grow up
Step by step you learn more about yourself
You get to know your strengths and weaknesses
What your capable of doing
And what makes you who you are

You learn the difference between
friends and acquaintances
You move on and let go of the past
You start becoming mature

At the beginning...
It was all about the cooties and
playing patty cake with friends

Now things changed...
The world has shown you a difference side to itself
You began to see who you are true friends
You learn what's really important in life

At times you cry
You start doubting myself
You began to hesistate and look back
You feel as if.. Maybe after all you can't do this

That's how it will feel
In order to grow up
It takes sacrifice and persistence
