Becoming me

Becoming me

A Poem by Annabelle Lee

I can remember last year's prom
The theme was fire and Ice
I've grown up a bit since then
Been beaten down several times
I've had my heart broken by someone
Who didn't make any sense to me
And then I had it stolen
Everyone saw it coming
I've decided something big
And done a lot of small things
Got in a lot of trouble 
Was a little less than friendly
Made it to state Cross Country
In placings we fell short
We almost made the state tournament
But choked up on that basketball court
I've seen all my friends 
At the literal rock bottom
And I've always stuck it out
Because they know that I love 'em
I've been stepped all over
But I'm gonna tell you, I don't mind
Because they know when they need me
I'm here, every time
I've taken the ACT
Though I'm still awaiting my score
I've been bloodied, battered, beaten
And bitchy to the core
But I've been kind when I can manage
And caring when need be
But most of all since then
I've been becoming me
So last night was my second prom
And it was nothing like the last
But in a way it was the same
And it went by too fast
I know this time next year
I'll sound a lot the same
But hopefully my story 
Will have a different name
So I'll go on changing
And being what I need to be
Just sit back and watch 
As I'm becoming me!

I absolutely love this poem, Annabelle.
I enjoy reading poetry that deals with a writer finding out who they truly are.
I went to my very first Prom March the 29th. It was so much fun to me. It was such a fun experience, too.
It is an experience that every girl will remember. Our theme was similar to the Great Gatsby; simple but yet elegant. I have taken the ACT twice now. When will you receive your score? I know that it takes from anywhere from three weeks to eight. When you find out, please message me. I will share my scores with you too. I have fallen in love and I have been hurt way too many times before too. It sucks but you will find someone that will treat you how you should be treated. I am too nice and I am easily walked all over too. I have been trying to change that though. I know that you will become someone successful and talented. Keep up the great writing! :)

Everything changes and you're changing along with it. Sounds to me you've made great strides in becoming who you want to be.
