Growing Pains

Growing pains, I've had many as they left plenty scars,
They remind me of how far that I've come.
Sit back and listen to my tale of what it really was like for me...

Just a young girl who was trying to figure out where I belonged.
I wasn't the cute little girl who wore pigtails with pretty pink bows with a flowery dress. No, I was the girl who was always dirty dressed in ripped jeans and a football jersey.
I was the girl who people called a weirdo,
I was the girl that many would make fun of,
I was the girl who tried to fit in.
I was always in need of a friend, but I always felt the air of judgement surround me as they would glare and whisper behind my back, but I didn't care too much because I was always ready to attack who ever came my way.
Fists up,
Hair disheveled,
Face flushed and hot as I came in like an angry bull.
You pushed me down, but I'd come back up and swing till I was stopped.
Growing with more pain as I one day I looked in the mirror and saw I looked different.
Father, you weren't the nicest
You thought it was real funny to tell me all of the things that were wrong with me when really you're no prize yourself.
Tried my hardest to live up to your expectations of perfection, but whenever I did i felt like I've failed.
Mother, why didn't you care?
You weren't really there, just only dictated me and told me to tough it out.
I understand life isn't fair, but does that mean I need to be treated that way?.

Growing pains is something we can all relate to,
Growing pains show you what you can go through,
Growing pains can be bitter in the beginning, but end sweet,
Growing pains don't define you,
Growing pains show how much you grew.
We all have growing pains.
