It Gets Easier – Author Laura Marie Clark


They say that the more you practice

The better you get at something,

Which would help to explain

Why I no longer feel like a coiled spring:

Though I am still nowhere near what

I imagined I could achieve,

My gradual development has

Removed my heart from my sleeve;

Once a vulnerable young woman,

Now I am pushing myself to be

Noticeably better than before,

And to shed the cloak of the trainee.
