Grow and Continue to Grow

Author:

Hi! I write poetry, related or not to my life. So enjoy reading!

grow-and-continue-to-grow

Days are going by so fast.
Days turns to weeks.
Weeks turns to months.
Months turns to years.


We'll be surprised.
That one day we're all grown up.
Maybe in our 20s, 30s or even 70s.
Working our butts off.


Loving hard.
Setting Goals.
Travelling.
Yet some of us people are not growing.


Some of us are still trapped.
Trapped in our old self.
Wanting to get out.
Wanting to taste the feeling of actually growing.


But believe me when I say,
You gotta let go of it.
Your old self will always be a part of your life.
But there's still much more to learn about.


Grow.
Surround yourself with good people.
The ones who motivates you.
The ones who will always be by your side.


Stop being so afraid
and Do it.
the only one holding you back is.
You.


We don't turn 20 twice.
Especially 70.
So GROW.
and Continue to grow.

Well...the verse..sure had a very important message for all of us..and I could connect to it so much..as I recently one upped..and I miss the year that went by...one of the finest of my life until now...but still there's much to come...maybe better...maybe worse....but that is what your poem tries to convey...that we need to walk out to know what awaits....A great write as always Brett..!! Thanks for sharing...!
