Elizabeth Gomez: I Know What It Was Like To Be A Girl

THEREALBaby+Elizabeth

I know what it was like to be a girl.
Lovely and naive,
Imitating mommy, searching for daddy.

I know what it was like to be a girl.
Scary and afraid
To change or remain the same.

I know what it was like to be a girl.
Carefree and thrilling,
Giggling and dancing.

I know what it was like to be a girl.
Difficult and confusing,
Suffering then learning to forgive.

I know what it was like to be a girl.
But those memories are fading,
Time spent and still quickly racing.

Now that I am a woman,
My edges are frayed,
Scared, yet dauntless and brave.

Now that I am a woman,
I’ve learned the game,
Dancing and giggling still the same.

Now that I am a woman,
Heartbreaks bother me not,
Now I know with time they go.

Now that I am a woman,
I must confess,
I don’t want to be a girl ever again.
