Growing Pangs

Young minds so fragile

future masterpieces

waiting to be cultivated

like unwritten poems.

Adolescent years a period of

intense growth physically,

and mentally.

Oft times emotionally

gripped with peer pressure

and laden with a plethora

of immense expectations.

Too much too soon can

fester mind-numbing, and

present lifetime challenges.

A few words of wisdom

 -author anonymous

“Mile by mile; it’s a trial

yard by yard, it’s hard;

but inch by inch, life’s a cinch.”

-Eugenia

  1. ‘unwritted poems’ and unpainted art… they wait for the right words and colors to do justice to their budding talent. Thanks for joining in!

  3. This is Wonderful. AND…So true. Youth is in itself like a heavy metal concert. Filled with notes that defy logic but beat with a rhythm so beautiful, that the melody lingers for a lifetime.

    You totally captured what it felt like to be young. Thank you for that memory. For me, it was eons ago.(and yesterday in a way). But music and playing guitar back in the 60’s while writing poetic lyrics made the angst of youth empowering. Thanks so much for sharing this. I loved it. ❤️✌️

  4. Love that quote:
    “Mile by mile; it’s a trial
    yard by yard, it’s hard;
    but inch by inch, life’s a cinch.”

  8. Eugenia,

    The first poem is nice but I enjoyed the short one just below it, especially the line which says…”Mile by Mile, it’s a trial”. That’s how I feel lots of time! Have a good week, my friend.
