I Remember The Moment When

Hey everyone A poem about the day I discovered I wanted to be a poet. I’ve given it the title I Remember The Moment When. I hope you enjoy the read.

I Remember The Moment When

I remember the moment when
I had my first crush
boys made me blush
I bought my first bra
went to the big school
I remember the moment when
I enjoyed my first night at the dancing
got ready for my first date
told a boy that could wait
kept a diary with secret dreams
it seemed to contain a few common themes
I remember the moment when
I got my exam results
gained my degree
believed the world belonged to me
as I went a protest march
just to see a boy I liked
I remember the moment when
I started to fight but didn’t raise a hand
prayed that you would understand my dreams, desires, hopes and fears
I remember all through the years the day I decided I had to be me
independent and totally free
I remember the moment when
I knew punches were pulled by pens
believed that power was in the words I wrote
I remember the moment when
I knew
I really knew
I wanted to be a poet
