I Used To Be Someone Else

Inspiration Monday VIII prompt:
Come and play along!

I USED TO BE SOMEONE ELSE

I used to be a little girl
With blond curls
Living in a care-free world.

Then I became a teen
Gullible and green
Beauty unseen.

Twenties brought something more,
Husband, daughter, retriever, Lord
Safe and secure.

Thirties, decade of loss
Bearing the cross
Silver from dross.

Forties were a torrent
Time spent
Not sure where it went.

The fifties arrived
Still alive
Beginning to thrive.
