Grew Up to Fast

I wish to be innocent

Now I look back at the things I did

Clocks tick faster

The mistakes plaster

 

Starting young

From age one

Where I begun

 

So small

So sweet

So dumb

So nieve 

 

As I grew

I heard the lies

Don't worry

Mommy and daddy are fine

 

A marraige ruined 

A family in tatters

Lost love

What really matters

 

I grew quick

I just have too

Watching my brother

Missing my mother

 

She worked long hours

And dad back in Iraq

Grandma and grandpa

Watching my sisters back

 

An awkward girl

She learned to write

pains and joys on paper

painted in graphite

 

She grew up young

She grew up fast

Now she craves to be

A child again

 

The childhood bliss

The sweet parental kiss

The small world

I dearly miss

 

The family still there

The family still cares

But I missed so much of my past

I grew up too fast

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
Our world
