PROMPT: [Insert Age]

9
when i was 6 i thought i was grown-up
mother's lipstick smothered across my face,
dresses and
bows and
pretty shoes.

but then I turned 8 and realized life wasn't so easy
mother died, lipstick gone
fights and 
crying and
cold nights.

turning 12 was where i though i had it all
store-bought lipstick became my own
late-night talks and
gossip and
fun.

but now i'm 14 and life: it's effort
too lazy to put on lipstick
lying in bed and
phones and 
unrealistic beauty standards.

    hello! this piece felt so meaningful and poetic. I really relate to how you described being fourteen.
    Also I just read the inheritance games and absolutely LOVED IT! I'm yet to read the second one tho :)
