My Peter Pan

In Poetry on April 24, 2015 at 2:59 pm

This adventure damn it’s been,

A long and arduous one with no end.

I cannot get a grip on reality,

Truly no one likes you when you are 23.

 

My discontent as an “adult”

A childhood cut short, quickly like a throat

Left me in this limbo

Between old and young, right and wrong

Thankfully it’s time to say so long

 

Saying goodbye to what held me back,

Has been harder than most can grasp.

Trying to stay a child, all the while

I was lost on my journey

 

Five years gone,

Where did I go wrong?

Within

Within our ecosystem

we have:

 

choice…

 

…choose to embrace our Aquarium,

 

or go mad trying to escape beyond

the glass

 

only to find

 

thereĀ is only

one

 

way

 

out.

Off the Road

Off the road

the crickets and the birds enjoy

 

the peace

and lull.

 

They pay homage to our Earth’s sustenance.

 

They sing in the wind.

 

They let it all go.
