Grown Ups

How many of us just never grow up?

Lost boys of neverland, fighting the grown-ups.

Hear stories of Peter Pan, the anti-man, a fearless lamb-

who fights the captain, hook in hand, and never comes home.

Never shows up. Never once. Never twice. Check his heart-nothing left.

Always playing. He seems alright.

Life turns to legend turns to bed-time tale

Stories-grow old-and memories fail.

And remembering stops being easy.

And I remember warm summer breezes.

Sitting, sharing apples under trees

Ready to explore as far as eye could see and

Shaking hands with trickless sleeves
