Tonight

Tonight I realized

To the core of my being

That I have finally

Grown into an adult

No longer am I the girl

with loose blond curls

continually falling into

her eyes

Now I find myself a woman

with determination

and silent confidence

Being grown is scary

frightening

no longer a girl

yet terrified to be a woman

for fear of being alone

To be grown

is to be on your own

To be on your own

is to be alone

To be alone

is worse than death

Being grown

exhilarating

terrifying

and all together

lonely

Oh tonight
