  1. Great take Eugenia

  2. Kids mention age as a higher number (I’m going to be 15 or 16). The enthusiasm to grow up and access adult privileges is obvious.

  3. This is wonderful and inciting rational thinking Eugenia. I love the prompt. 💕🌼🌼💕

  4. Hi Eugi, Can you please describe it?

    • Lokesh, the prompt image is a child looking at the reflection of himself in what appears to be a glass door. My poem reflects upon our children that don’t have a clear vision while growing up. Empowering them with wisdom will help them get through those growing up (formidable) years. I hope this helps. 😉

  5. I think most of my youth was a blurry mess. I moved around due to my Dad’s jobs. Stability for children is good. The good thing about moving around is that one learns to adapt (and there are many forms of adaptation). Cheers! ~Jules

    • My youth had its ups and downs. Yes, I agree about having to adapt which seemed to change depending on the situation.

  6. Wow this is a complete change reminds me of that famous song well two actually – you’ll know both …


    Fabulous songs both!!

    Great poem too with an image that sits with both songs.

  7. Mm, looks like my last comments disappeared. Great poem, great image. Fantastic blackdrop too.
