Wednesday's Poem On Thursday?!? YEA!!!

OK I know what today is.. I know this should have been on here yesterday too. I guess I'm about normal; A day late and a dollar short. I'm sure some will forgive me.. Others will know I don't care!

This poem is about a young woman that I know. She hasn't recognized herself in this poem and neither has any one else. I will not tell who she is unless someone guesses. I have had many guesses as to who she is but none have been right so far. I would bet though that almost everyone knows a young person who this makes them think of. Please forgive me for being a day slack.. and enjoy this poem.

"Youth cannot know how age thinks and feels. But old men are guilty if they forget what it was to be young."
~J. K. Rowling~

"In case you're worried about what's going to become of the younger generation, it's going to grow up and start worrying about the younger generation."
~Roger Allen~

"Don't laugh at a youth for his affectations; he is only trying on one face after another to find his own."
~Logan Pearsall Smith~ (1865 - 1946)

I See!

I saw her
standing there
Her hair
in Bright green
Parrots feather waves,
Hanging tangled,
Down her spine.
Her yellow ducky
diaper pin, Pierced
in unasked question
Her pale hands
resting upon
her thin hips
Her long legs
under layers of
Two sizes too big
Holes at the knee
And I swallowed
My disgust
as I heard
Her say.
"I am making a statement!'
For Now I see!
'Tis no statement
she makes!
But a demand!
"Look at ME!"
"See ME!"
"I AM what is important!"
a demand and a plea.

"Please see me!!"

and finally,
I did!
I Do!

Be kind to the young folks in your life even if they look strange and act weird sometimes. We were once strange and weird our selves. I still am at times.
They will grow up and might be the one who chooses your nursing home! Here their statements. Even those they wear! Have a wonderful blessed day!

Very nice poem. Children can really be demanding at times.

Have a great day!

Thanks Strider. And yes Kids can be demanding.. But mostly they just want to be seen and heard..
