The Woman Bottled Up in Me
Poem from YOUR L!FE: Young Voices from The Write of Your Life™, Anthology (to be released Winter 2014) by The Write of Your Life™ Student
She is confident.
She isn’t afraid to stand tall and take eyes away from her feet.
She isn’t afraid of falling, so she doesn’t.
She’s like a flower blooming so strong and beautiful.
But she’s so deep down and out of reach I fear I won’t find her.
My desire to be this person is so great.
But my habit of wondering what everyone is thinking of me is in my way.
If I let that go then maybe I can stand tall too.
