roma

you think you're an
adult
grown-up
everywhere
but not where
you were small
you go back there
and become small again
that little one
with fear
in her legs
hands
stomach
the fragile child
who wouldn't have
done anything
special
and now
that she has
when she comes home
she still thinks
she can't do it
even though
she already has


that little girl who when
comes home
forgets she was
a grown up in every 
corner of the world.
except hers.
she doesn't believe
she can become a woman
even though she already is.
everywhere,
but not there.
from the bedroom
where she was afraid
a woman cries
believing she's still a child
because if she moves forward
rome always brings her back.
a woman around the world.
in Rome, nothing but a child
dreaming of being a woman
and stop being afraid.
