Adolescence

The things that are said

between these four walls

ring with the audacity of youth.

Trying on the crude, the rude, the fool,

the lost and no one understands me

attitudes.

Teenagers.

They know it all and they

know nothing at all and can’t

tell the difference. Rational

thought and the irrational

pull of feelings and hormones

create the beauty of divine and flawed

interactions among them.

Rush to decision to action

but then retrospect is

for the older and wiser.

Buying time until face to face with

maturity knocking down their door.

They must answer and enter upon the

threshold of adulthood.
