More Than a Child


Photobucket
sitting here dwelling on past events i ponder their meanings
a lot i denied for many years not believing i could be wrong
as time passed i slowly began to see what i didnt want to see
growing up is more than a child turning into an adult

i saw things i had done that caused much pain to those i loved
i wasnt aware i could do so much damage just to grow up
the pain i suffered was necessary for me to understand selfishness
growing up is more than a child turning into an adult

to see within myself  to see the pains of others feeling how it felt
having an illness that created compassion to others not pity for self
caring for my mother seeing her in a different light learning to love her
growing up is more than a child turning into an adult

taking myself beyond my limits to fully understand what life really was
understanding the realities and the responsibilities that came with it
these i had never learned now i had to learn them to have life back
growing up is more than a child turning into an adult

i had learned so much of other things but never about me or family
they had never meant much to me i was searching for truths i didnt know
learning the importance of families and their bonding the real love i missed
growing up is more than a child turning into an adult

growing up is caring for others loving your family and mate with all your heart
understanding what their feelings and needs are giving of yourself not taking
these were hard lessons to learn almost a lifetime of learning now i know
growing up is more than a child turning into an adult
