#184

As children we stand on our tippy-toes

trying to get a peep at the future ahead.

So eager to be older,

we forget to live our youths.

But if someone had said adulthood

would knock you right down to your bottom

and force you to learn how to walk again

perhaps i would not have been so eager

to take those foolishly excited steps

into adulthood.
