No title

by carmenmariamandley

There is a certain time

when the growing up starts

slowly, they say

but it is loud, and sudden

and all at once you realize


you should be the thing

not the after

not the in between

The grass sprouts between your toes because you are on the solid ground.

no matter how much you want

no matter how much you move,

you cannot change anything or anyone.

You can only realize you are the best thing you’ve ever come up with.

And the lucky ones should stand in line.

All that being said.

I am glad for you. And glad it’s done.
