Stages of my life

From the time I was a child,
to the present as a teen,

the world and I have been changing,

In all the time between.

I remember years ago,

I was so little then,

all smiles and rainbows,

So full of dreams back then, 

I used to think everything was worth while,
but my sense of style has changed and so has my smile.
I remember when my grandparents brought dolls for Christmas 

Over time I began to miss this, 

When I was 10, I had grown up from dolls to technology,

I was beginning to realize the world had so much more for me. 

That is when my grandmother knew I wasn't little anymore.

I just wanted to continue to learn and grow, 

of this I was sure.
 

Growing up might not be easy for some,

but for me it was simple,

I always looked forward to what was to come.

I've known that simply saying hello was a step towards being kind.
I've known that spreading and sharing the love could brighten someones day.

I've done these things and built friendships that bind. 

My destiny is still unsure and there is much I do not know,

My journey stills continues, 

I look forward to all the places I will still go.

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
