Growing Up This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
At first,
carefree
so innocent
so angelic
Clueless but curious
An explorer
in uncharted land
Cautious but daring
to go anywhere
and everywhere.
Climbing
Crawling
Creeping
through your habitat.
The mind
open to new things
new places
new worlds
in your newfound excitement
of adventure.
Then;
cold
hard
unmoving.
Defiant
like a rock.
Refusing to change
its place in the world
and who it is.
Stubborn
ignorant
unwilling.
As if there is no other way
to live life
than how they do.
The result
of growing up.
