The Difference in Ages by Alyssa H

At the age of five, I found myself wishing, Dreaming of things I couldn’t help but believe in For parents and friends, for siblings and gems To help me figure things out At the age of seven I found myself thinking, Beginning to discover, there were bigger things Than me and you, and what was left behind There’s something more important Than being called divine At the age of eleven, I found myself clinging, To the dream that I would be A writer like my father, Creating new words to expand myself Without changing a thing about the life I live At the age of fourteen, I forgot how to keep wishing For the things I no longer believe in Because people let me down And I didn’t see a way out, At the age of sixteen, I realized I was wrong Wishes, dreams, and everything precious Are not something you can push to the side, Something you can’t forget ever existed, I realized it was time, to become a little younger To forget about my childhood and live something better To be the person I was meant to be And I had to start by being free I had to start by believing in me

  1. I wish I could be that sure of something. To have that desire to be something and know that’s what I’m going to do. I have desires, wishes, and dreams, yes, but to fulfill them is not something I know if I can do. This is incredible. It’s really made me think. I’m sorry that you tried to push them aside, but I’m glad you still decide to pursue them. Great job with this.

  2. I love this! “Beginning to discover, there were bigger things Than me and you, and what was left behind There’s something more important Than being called divine” is my favorite line! Great job!
