Comming Of Age

by Xtasy   Jan 13, 2005

A smile that's wiry
A hope that's gone
A spirit not so free
I lost the child
So long ago
The child was only me

My heart can't trust
My eyes can't lie
There's no more guarantee
The flowing tears
The burning eyes
Enough emotion for three

As years gone by
I've realized
There's so much more to me
Then a broken heart
And a lyrical teen
I've seen who I can be

I live much more
And say my prayers
I'm so much more alive
But no regrets
For things that's past
I needed the painful drive

I still can't say
I love myself
There's still so much to do
Though no more tears
And looking down
There's always room to improve

I've come so far
And gained so much
I made it through that stage
Lessons are learned
I continue to grow
As I am coming of age
