Adult Child

Little child


Knowing life is beautiful.

Though the world is fraught with danger,

still learns to read,

seeks to feel.

Knowing through,

learning to ,

be more than what is.


Adult child

learns what’s corrupted.

Growing away from

                Hard pleasure

                                and fresh feeling,

into all knowing ignorance.

Adult child,

so afraid.


Though life lies more than sometimes,

it’s not for you to know wrong.

Time wills all to changing,

                Evolution’s aging.


HG – 1995-2000
