Reflections of a Girl Grown To Woman

April Poetry Month

Poem 12

I am curiously unmoved

Where has she gone?

The girl who wept so easily,

What dried her tears and turned

her face to stone?

Where there was pity

Now indifference.

Where there was joy,

Bitterness.

Love gave way

To other interest.

I am but a rag doll

A lifeless toy

Lost in the wake

Of a girl

Grown to woman.

Hello Ann and good Morning,

This rings true of many young girls who have been hit with some tough things in life, turning bitter. So sad..what could have been..Always hopeful they are able to reach beyond their circumstances and find joy once again.

Thank you for sharing..Great job!

Your name is Miss Quick. To answer with a comment so soon. I do believe there are two of you. Sunnie, in the 30 poem April challenge, I have gone back and brushed off some old ones from another period in my life. Things don't change. Young girls still have to grow up.

Thanks for commenting. Have a great day. You deserve it! AD

Both men and women mature. Your poetry reflects that. How each of us deal with the realities makes us who we are. You are a poet.

Michael, anytime you need to ask a question about a woman, feel free to ask me. However, I could only give you my perspective. I don't claim to be an expert.

Thanks for the visit! Ann
