Tales Of A Teenage Girl

There was a Girl
A teenage Girl
she has all changed
Her personality has changed
I should have known
how much she has grown
from tales to puberty
Being herself is just a duty
Life Is what she makes it
There ain't any need to fake it
The tears in her eyes
as she will realize
that life is not what it is
there are more to it
and as she recalls her minor mistakes
which breaks her heart
she walks through the rain
in a bid to forget had pain
she wants to leave familiar places
to meet new faces
what can she do?
where will she go?
its just another tale
which she tells.

I like your poems, they reveal self-discovery that millions of people are struggling with.
I should have known! Nice work.
