Emergence

July 30, 2008
By Keelie Newsom, Zanesville, OH

I’m not about to say I’m sorry,
and I won’t admit my past regrets.
I moving forward from living in the past,
but I’ve never said a word that I haven’t meant.
A change has been needed for quite some time,
and maybe it’s actually starting to progress.
I’m living for myself, not anybody else,
and I will become a stronger person, just watch.
I have the confidence within me hidden beneath a shy exterior
but soon it will emerge to show what’s always been.
I won’t always be this quiet, timid girl who can’t say no,
sooner or later I will be stepping out of my shell.
I’ll take chances, not caring what the outcome may be.
It’s time for me to start living.
