Becoming a woman

My, how the days have flown by

There is no time even for a sigh

Here I was swinging my ponytails

And hopping around rails Throwing tantrums and deliberately falling

Just to hear my mother’s calling

It was a different life , a different lie

It’s now time to say to all that good bye

Now I have grown

New skills I could hone

I can now travel alone

All I have for consolation is a phone

A torch bearer of independence

Try and see my life through a lens

I can take on the world head on Working from dusk to dawn I am a woman Breaking shackles Empowering is something I can

Making crackles
