Tribute to Peter Pan

growing up.

what does that even mean anymore

it doesn’t just mean learning

it means learning to doubt yourself

everything you thought you knew

you felt for sure you would never do

everything you knew you would do

 

it doesn’t just mean growing

it means growing to hate yourself

 

dreams soaring, free, unbounded

tugged back down to Earth, with more force you thought could ever be mustered

crashing

twisting

 

it’s complicated.
