As I Grew Older…

By: Jennifer Mendoza

As I grew older, I began to think about

The world around me.

As I grew older, I began stressing

About the world around me.

As I grew older, I began to get anxious

About the world around me.

As I grew older, I began to wonder

What I was to make of myself

And what I was to become.

As I grew older, I began to think about

People’s perceptions of me.

As I grew older, I began to observe;

The one thing I noticed was how cruel the

People around me grew up to be.

As I grew older, I began to think maybe

The world around me was just

An utterly cruel and unjust place.

As I grew older, I began to wonder how

People could be so mean in the world around me.

As I grew older, I began to think

Of the people who could bully other people on the Internet

And call it freedom of speech.

As I grew older, I began to wonder

How some people evolutionized

Into something so horrible.

As I grew older, I began to realize

If I focused on all the bad I wouldn’t see the

Beautiful in the world.

As I grew older, I began to appreciate.
