(almost) grown up

May 13, 2021

you are 17 and your life is spooling before you like a golden thread
the question 'so
what do you want to do when you
grow up' holds so much more
weight
you think your bones might turn
to glass -
you are 
    almost
grown up
and it doesn't feel like a coming of
age movie more
a becoming
aged
    movie
and every plan you make you
force through rose tinted 
glass
forcing the font into
sparkly comic sans
    because 
stop
and
think
and your future will spool like
garden twine
because 'what do you want to be when you
    grow up' 
was always an imagination exercise
there was never a choice
not in this world
not in this life
and the ladder is bleak and leads
not to heaven
    nor hell
but nowhere
    and
    and you are 
almost grown
up
but not grown up enough
to accept
the reality
of reality
    it is too grey and

so

you weave golden thread
in the sky
and force the dreams to stay
    a little longer
