The In-Between Girl

I’m a work in progress.

I’m not finished.

But, I have started.

I can look behind me

and in front of me.

I see all the version of me:

Past

Present

Future.

 

The first girl sits at the starting line,

A ball of anxiety and loneliness.

She is slow and weighed down-

Mentally and physically.

She doesn’t see the point.

But me? I do. I see clearly,

One

Step

Forward.

 

The girl at the end of the line-

The one I want to be-

Smiles brightly down at the two of us.

She’s courage, patience, hard work,

And, most of all, time.

I can see her, that’s what I see clearly.

Smiling

Bright

Before.

 

Me? I’m far from being done.

And, I’ve learned that’s okay.

I am the state of in between.

I will always be looking back.

I will always be reaching forward.

I will always be the in-between girl:

Always

Halfway

There.
