Free of Me

Free of Me

A Poem by Chloe..Across the Universe

When I was a little girl I wanted to be a woman -
Lipstick, high-heels , black nylons for me
When I was a little girl I wanted to be a Vet
Sick puppies and kitty cats I would heal
When I was a little girl
I wanted to be a mother
My baby doll I did care for, love well

When I was a teenager I wanted to be a woman
Bleeding from the womb
When I was a teenager I wanted to be loved
Kissed and hugged , cuddled and cooed
When I was a teenager my mother said I stood funny
Crooked back , a crack in my otherwise non-perfection
Surgery was the only cure

For me I was robbed of my teenage years
A woman is all I wanted to be
A Vet with sick puppies and kitty cats
Off to college I went
I made up for the robbing of my teenage years
Boys, cars, pot and booze
Hoping to bleed with each new moon

Then a  little girl I wanted to be
No worries and my mommy to take care of me
No sick puppy dogs or kitty cats
No lipstick , nylons high heel shoes
No bleeding from my woman's womb

A little girl with no worries carefree
As now all I have are staid memories
No one to chase away the boogies at bay
Being a woman is not all I thought
If I could be a little girl again
I wish I were a little girl again
I want to be free of me
Can I please be a little girl again
I want my mommy to take care of me

Well-written and very much in touch with the experiences of many girls and women - we look forward to growing up and then once adulthood hits us, we want nothing more than to go back to being carefree little girls, without worries. Live in the moment is the key message!

Posted 2 Years Ago

A really thoughtful piece of writing illustrating that we should enjoy our present and live each moment happily.
Neither getting confused for the future, nor lamenting the past. :)

This is truly wonderful. you have described a little girl's mind quite vividly. Nice poem.

Full of imagery and it literally brought me to the day I wanted to grow up and be a woman.. No longer a little girl but something more. Really happy that your wrote this! :) Such a good write

Posted 9 Years Ago

This poem really has a wonderfully nostalgic tone to it, and it makes me rethink what I am actually doing in my life, and what I plan on accomplishing later on. Amazingly done, you are a very talented writer.

We never know how good we have it until its to late. We as a human race take far far to much of an advantage of everything we have. I have felt the same way you described for a long time. To be a little boy again not a girl of course for along time. I miss those carefree days. I think your poem has embodied that feeling in a better way than I have ever seen it described. You did an excellent job.
