    I think this is probably the right location to post this :)

    The hurricane rages, tears, savages with spite,
    Rips into buildings, throws debris out of sight.
    Twists and contorts, spitting anger, hurling hate!
    Why can't I express myself with passion too, of late?
    But passion, what the hell is that? Shouldn't it be give and take?
    I need to claw my way out of here, if only for my sake.

    Where's my fire? My inner flame? Did someone stamp it out?
    When did I exchange this little whisper for my shout?
    Whatever happened to that little girl who'd never bend?
    I guess that little girl grew old, and battered in the end!
    She got so tired of speaking out, trying to be heard.
    No one listened when she spoke, no one really cared.

    So sad and tired and weak with tears, discarded on the floor
    I rested there until I found I needed rest no more!
    And now I'm back and angry 'cos it isn't fair and so
    you'd better watch out world! 'Cos now I'm finally gonna grow!
    I'm gonna tear this place apart, I'm gonna show you all
    I'll climb the highest mountain and I'll never fall!

    I'll get a purple hat and wear it every day with pride,
    and when the wind is blowing I'll be raging at its side!
    I'll tear down all your fences, and your stupid rules and when
    I've finished, I'll go and find what I believed back then.
    I'll believe in dragons if I want to, I'll have an invisible pal.
    I'll talk to fairies in the garden. If want to, then I shall!

    I used to think I mattered! I used to think you cared!
    I used to know that I was me, and love had to be shared.
    I knew just what it was to love, with passion and abandon.
    I had ideals and dreams and goals, like heirlooms I could hand on.
    As a child I was a princess, waiting for my prince to call
    But he never got to me. I never danced at the ball.

    And all the things I wanted, and the good intentions brave
    And all the time I had to do them, ere I reached the grave!
    Why didn't someone tell me? Oh, but I would never hear!
    How fast it rushes past you, every sneaky rotten year!
    You blink and you miss it, oh how that saying's true
    The problem was when I blinked, I ended up with you!

    Traitorous time, I rage against thee! Get thee from this place!
    Give me the power of hurricane to throw back in your face!
    For I am woman, strong and good! I may be weathered too,
    But tougher for the dirty tricks I learned direct from you!
    You didn't think I'd make it. You wanted me to drown.
    But now instead of fear, I laugh every time you frown.

    So take yourself away from me, leave me to myself.
    I was always pale and ill; you took away my health.
    But now I'm strong, a woman proud, head held high and free
    I've found my place, my love, my pride, you can't take that from me!
    You've lost the fight, I've won the war, you're beaten through and through
    Instead of wearing me down with hate, I'm done, I'm through with you!

    Lee, interesting read! I enjoyed your poem and felt the anger against time's onslaught...we each will fight this battle. Great read!

    Interesting take on it :) It's not about time at all it's about a controlling relationship that ended <grin>

    LOL...I read what I wanted...lol. I love this poem because it spoke to me...and that is what poetry is all about. For me and my struggle at the moment, it spoke volumes to me loudly...maybe that is why I just missed the point you intended to make? Probably..either way, it is great.
