Random Act-A Poem for the Beautiful

A long time ago
there were girls
(mean girls they are called now
and they were)

hiding tacks in their pockets
while feigning smiles for front pages
I trembled and fought
fully for my life then

It was only a childhood battle
but if I could have looked forward
I would have seen
an adult whispering for her victory still

And she HAS been victorious, I think.

Actually,I still have to battle but now it is against myself.
Yes, victorious.
Thanks Raehan!
