The poem(s) are below...



coming of age

you hips grow wider, you sprout hairs in awkward places,
sacks of fat develop on your chest, every few weeks your body goes through a change a sort of spring cleaning that is not only reserved for spring...

your thoughts, hopes, dreams, aspirations 
DOES NOT MATTER! you have a specific purpose

your hips grew to accommodate the life/lives you will soon support inside you 
the sacks of fat? well to feed those lives of course

you can break the mould!
you can 'beat the system'
you are strong !

the  catch?

you remain an outcast, a weirdo...the strange one

do not worry you are not alone
though we hide in the shadows we are still there cheering you on supporting you....
