Grip Of Life

They say you're young to understand
In the face of life you can't Fight and stand

They Hold you back and hide you deep
In the face of problems they ask you to sleep

They love to Lock you in you're old cocoon
'why grow up'they say'It's just too Soon'

They forgot the thing they should know
that somewhere somehow you've got to grow

That you got to break through your shell
and find some dreams to fulfill

Turn inot a Fighter
make a dark day Brighter

discover the truth within the hidden roots
To reach for Life's Ripe fruits

Good meaning and depth inside...good poem Sarah...thanks...10
Well Sara, all fruits of life are not ripe, some are sour and bitter as well. No doubt grip of life in young age is very forceful but ripeness of life is a strength itself. The main battles of life are fought within one's innermost zones of heart, mind and soul.
