I wrote this one day in 2016 while missing my teen-hood friends and all the carefree years we had before adulthood took over.
This poem came to me after my divorce. I put on a brave face in public, but fell apart at home. Everyone kept telling me how strong I was; if they only knew. I guess now they do.
I’ve changed a lot in the last 8 years. Many of my friends now call me old-fashioned. I take it as a compliment.
