if i could speak to teenaged me

if i could speak to teenaged me.
what i would say,
is something to take the sadness
away.
i would tell the troubled girl
to hold on to her self worth,
nothing is worth losing it for,
nor is anyone here on earth.
i would tell her that she
should follow her dreams,
and not be derailed by
other's manipulations
and schemes.
lastly i would tell her
that being a teen is
hard but is also gold.
and those years will
be missed,
when she gets old

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
