little girl

A Poem by just take a breath

little girl, don't you grow up

take that makeup off

and smile...

know your beautiful


don't get caught up in the fight

where your selected wrong or right

for every dream there's a chance

to prove that there is no "cant"


don't give your heart away

don't ever talk to strangers

do what your mama said that day

walk away from all the dangers


little girl don't you lose yourself...

stay away from growing up

you'll find that life's worth living for

if you don't know all that stuff

if only they could remain sequestered in innocence...

but the sentiment is admirable and charming nonetheless and states the idea clearly.

I've never had to raise children of my own, but I can only guess at the constant worries that a parent has for his or her child when growing up. They're powerless to stop them growing up - it's a fact of life - but it is possible to prevent any harm from coming to the child with good parenting. But it's never easy. Nothing is. I really liked how you captured the moment of a parent who was devoted to bringing up their child in a safe, loving environment. It was very well crafted and a nice poem to read. Good work

Hard to be a parent. I raised four children. You wish you could protect them every minute of the day. A poem with logic. We must allow our children to run free. All of us must taste the good and the bad in a life. A excellent poem.
