Grow Up

A young girl left her hometown to see the world.

Leaving her lover’s and friends’ faces stained with tears.

She was anticipating the journey that lay ahead of her,

But, little did she know that life was about to deviate from the path she laid down. 
She arrived at the destination with open arms,

The destination that brought forth events that rewired her whole self.

She had to toughen up more than she had envisioned

To take on the challenge life brought her with a belief that she would overcome anything.
She put on a brave face to hide her emotions,

And everyone was deceived of the life she was living in that distant place. 

She handled life alone, in an alien land,

And grew up to become a woman who could now face anything life threw at her.
