Now That She is Older

Now that she is older,

she’s a little bolder;

turning a cold shoulder

when he played her for a fool.

She’s a little bolder,

now that she is older,

doing what she wants

instead of only what he’s told her.

She’s begun to dream again,

now that she is bolder.

She wants a man to love her

the way he said he did.

  1. I love this poem Barbs. “Now that she is older, doing what she wants instead of only what he’s told her. She’s begun to dream again, now that she is bolder” <<< Sent shivers down me, inspiring to me indeed.

    • Thanks Chanele. The poem came to me as I was driving home from town yesterday. Sometimes, a poem comes from out of nowhere. I like to believe they are triggered by things I see and hear that I am not consciously aware of. I am glad it inspired you.

  2. Deception in every human relationship is as painful as a bullet wound. Those affected often find it hard trust. Your poem mirrors this lesson and a desire to move on after the hurt. Thanks for sharing.
