Growing pains

I’m growing, so they tell me, It’s normal to feel like this, Everyone goes through it, You’ll smile to look back on these fears.

I’m growing, so they tell me, Yet why does change, for me, Always bring such awful pain, Surely this is not how it feels, For every poor soul of my age, There must be more than this.

I’m growing, so they tell me, So why does it feel Like I’m falling apart, And crumbling piece by piece?

I’m growing, so they tell me, But I’m bursting apart at the seams, There’s too much of me, I’m far too large, To fit neatly into this world.

I’m growing, so they tell me, Yet, truly these can’t be, The best years of my life, I’ll struggle and fight, In the hope there’s something more.

I’m growing, so they tell me, But what if I don’t want to change? What if this place is soft and safe, What if I don’t want to leave?

I’m growing, so they tell me, And one day, I’ll look back on this, And be glad I grew, And full of life, And happy with who I’ve become.

I’m growing, so they tell me, I’m growing, that I know, I’m growing, it hurts, I’m growing, I’m changing, I’m growing, and hoping,

That one day I’ll look, And smile, and say: “I’m grown”
