A new page

Turning a page
I feel like I’m turning a page
I feel like I’m making a change
I’m beginning to see
That the change is within me
I feel like I’ve grown up
Become the woman
I was meant to be
I’m proud and I’m strong
It’s Who I’ve been all along
With clarity now I can see
That the child within is fully grown
And that the lovely young woman has grown wings and flown
That the fight I’ve been having
Has been with myself all along
I just didn’t want it to be
That youth had departed
And that I now belonged
To the invisible ones
The young divert their eyes
The ones that used to stare
They look straight through me
As if I am not even there
As if they’ll catch whatever they see
That they too will soon cease to be
finally I realise that they don’t matter
The only thing that matters is me
I feel like I’m turning a page
I feel like I’m making a change
I’m beginning to see that I like being me
I’m becoming the strong woman I’m meant to be
I have wise words to impart
Love And gratitude in my heart
I don’t know it all
But I’ve learned a lot
And finally I’ve become the grown woman I was meant to be
ME
