Sixteen Retrospect

We Write Poems Prompt for the week: If you could go back in time and impart a bit of wisdom to your sixteen year old self, what would you say?

Sixteen Retrospect

To you young
girl with pale skin,
hair the shade
of midnight,
find your way through darkened days
back into the warmth of sunlight.

To you young
girl whose potential
is ignored,
trust yourself,
entrust your heart to your pen
and write until dark ink runs dry.

To you young
girl, sweet sixteen is
a bitter
taste forlorn
but he is there, where paths do cross
so keep on to yourself.
