The New Me

July 1, 2017
By Anonymous

              Summer is gone and school has begun

   I am anxious to begin a new school, new year, a new me

Although I am older, there are many childhood songs left to be sung

  But I'm in high school now, unable to let anyone see

            The Little girl that is still inside of me

            Everyone around me seems so grown

Sometimes I want to lock myself in my youth and throw away the key

           So I will set and observe all that is around

           And decide for myself who I should be

I won't go unheard or never make a sound

          I will adjust to the person I am becoming

          I will adjust to the new me

I created this right before I started my first year of high school. I wrote this in hopes of getting out all of my fears that I was holding inside. This is one my most favorite peoms that I have written yet.
