It seems as if this day, of all days...
I leave behind my childhood,
so much of my innocence
has been shed in the lessons
I've learned along the way.
A turning point, the cusp between
being thought a child and an adult.
Looking back, I see everything,
all that brought me to this point.
All the steps, all the trials,
things magical and things ungainly.
My triumphs and my failures,
these are what make me the woman I am today.
What lies ahead of me,
is still shrouded in mystery.
I may know what I want,
I may know how to get there,
but the journey will not be easy.
Some friends will fall by the wayside,
and new ones will step forward.
Things will change, and perhaps...
some will stay the same.
Only time will tell what lies ahead,
as I step through the doorway,
leaving behind the irresponsibility of my youth,
and start to shoulder the mantle of adulthood.
My thoughts, my words, my deeds
will all begin to carry more weight now
among my elders as I show them
how much I have matured.
As I become the woman I am today.
I wrote this for :iconconnorish: who wanted me to write something for his friend's 18th birthday, I hope they both like it!

Ok, so I'm reading this over and over during my lunch hour and I am so filled with emotion. It makes me think back on my coming of age...too many years ago....as well as what I'm going to feel like when my little ones get ready to step out on their own, some day....not nearly enough years in the future. I think it is a sign of true talent when you can share emotion and make your reader feel happiness, sadness, rememberance and regret all in piece. Thank you again for sharing your talent.

I have always viewed art not only for the visual beauty it allows me but also for the emotion that, with the help of the artist, is portrayed in every piece.
It can stand out and hit you in the face with such force or it can have such subtle undertones that has me, the viewer, imagining much more than is visible.
This is one such piece and an instant fav and my comment is sent to give you words of praise.............:iconmonteil4:
