12 Perspectives – 12

The day has come;
The door is shut behind.
It’s time for all this passion,
And this mind
To make a life, a difference,
A view —
To take control, and see
What she can do.

There’s trepidation, and
There’s confidence.
But she’s a purpose,
And a growing sense
Of those horizons,
Distant, and within,
That she must conquer,
And then re-begin.

She has no static dream,
No stone tableau —
Just knows it’s time to live,
And time

To go

    1. Thank you, I really enjoyed these.

      I set out with a goal of recording some perspectives on feelings I’ve observed in girls that age, with two limits: no reference to my own feelings, and no reference to boys. It was a very liberating exercise.
