After 12

Twelve years of compliance and obediency
“Yes” was the correct word, then
Suddenly
seemingly from nowhere
the word “NO” came from her mouth and lips
with her hands on hips
previously subservient
a human being had already been formed…..
not a child nor adult
one in adolescence
with a mind of her own
was starting to grow and know
the difference between right and wrong
this was to be her everlasting song
after the age of twelve
she began to become herself
and realise the wrongs that had been done
this was not to change
as she grew older
in fact
she got bolder and bolder
rebellion abound
for years to come
she challenged the world time after time
yet heard so many lies
now her heart wishes to be just
eleven years old
before the after 12
when no real difference was known
though of course it was ……………………………………….
