Room To Grow

Everyone tries to wrap me up,
Using string or cotton wool,
I'm treated like I'm a  baby,
It makes my life feel so dull.

I am not allowed to use my own imagination,
People try and tell me what to believe,
I try to aim higher to satisfy other people,
And left devastated when I don't achieve.

I'm not a girl so don't treat me like I'm thick,
Not yet a woman so don't give all your troubles to me,
Don't try to live my life how you want it lived,
These are my eyes through them I see.

I am left feeling down when they treat me like pooh,
It hurts me when people use nasty remarks,
It leaves a hole in my heart and confidence,
Like a candle glowing in the dark.

I'm not a woman I'm just a kid,
But I'm not a girl I'm not sad,
I am me as who I am,
I'm not an angel, but I'm not bad.

Please listen to my heart,
And take in what it says,
'Coz when we're talking reality,
It's only normality it craves.

Vixi Wroe, 17 (C)
