I am a grown up- spoken word by Adeline Fecker

I am a grown up

Spoken word poetry by adelinefecker

I am a grown up because I know how to hold my head up high until my neck becomes a steel block.

I am a grown up because I know how to swallow tears and burn them deep down so no one sees.

I am a grown up because I never scream until I am sure I am alone.

I am a grown up because I never say please stop.

I do not expect you to take ‘please’ seriously

and I do not expect a single word to perform magic.

Truth is not delivered in a single word but in a mountain,

a tsunami of words I never got to say.

Truth is something that grows until it fills you too full and you have to bleed.

I am a grown up because I don’t bleed.

I bend.

I let the roots grow through me.

Let the leaves push through my hair and stretch to the sunlight I could never reach.

I am a grown up because I shed pieces of myself no longer worth saving.

Memory is not a storage container with no bottom.

Memory is a tree.

Memory grows through my brain and then it sheds.

Memory has no time for you.

Memory has no time for me
