I Grew...

I thought of sharing,
They snatched it all from me...
I thought of loving,
They left me to weep...

I thought I said the truth,
They thought I was shrewd...
They made me a clown,
They gave me names,
I confess I made some innocent mistakes,
But why was I the only one top be FRAMED?
Am I sounding weak?
Am I sounding broken?
No I am not...
As am waking up,
To let them know...
Am here...Am here...

I'm here to GROW!!!

I read this piece of poetry somewhere. I could relate myself to it almost instantly.

So true...we all grow! Some stumble, some fail but some make it to the top!

When I was a kid, i longed for everything...dolls and gifts and chocolates and dresses and perfumes...I always thought that I would get a big Barbie or Cinderella on my birthday, but I never got any of them. Obviously I was disappointed, but I guess it was for good. I hated my parents for that. But my life did not stop there.

When I was in my teens, I wanted to go for outings with my friends...but I was refused. I cried... I wanted to do everything that my friends did...but I realised that I would never be allowed to! Today I am free to SAY that THIS IS MY LIFE...yet I know that I CAN NOT say that! Today I am free, but I am not. Today I am happy, but I am not. I smile...is that what you say? Peep into my soul and you'll see that I lost it when I was a kid. You say I'm optimistic, you must be kidding.
But I've grown with all this...with each disappointment, with every tear, every setback...I've grown!
I will grow...and I will show you...I am not weak, I am not broken.

I am the MASTER, not the SLAVE,
I am the VICTOR, STRONG and BRAVE.

You call me INSANE, but I am no PRETENDER,
I wear no MASK, I wear no VENEER,
I weave the web of my own destiny,
Where I stand today, bears the testimony...!
