Contradictions

I want to be grown up and a little girl,
I want to stay home, safe, and travel the world,
I want to look like nothing and be everything.
I want to be alone and I want to see my friends,
I wish this never started and I wish it never ends;
Decide what I want most, real life or pretend.
In theory there is so much drawing me forwards,
Yet always something holding me here
In my safe danger zone.

    After a very super weekend I am back at the soup reading. I enjoyed reading your poetry this morning Abi. There are so many diverse writers here and I am so happy I am able to read most of them. Have a wonderful week and may you find what you are looking for in life and in your writing. Love, Carol
