Breaking Point

By , bronx, NY
Years ago I was a child:
Slow, short and shy and nothing more to them.
While their eyes watched, I grew
Shedding the coat of insecurity that I wore.

Never do I want to say good-bye
To all my childhood memories,
But as they watched and as I grew
The memories went away like a fog rolling in to suffocate my youth.

Growing up means leaving behind.
