My Path Runs Ahead of Me and My Plans

Canto Two

written by: Benjamin R Bray

@MrBray317

 

I'm surrounded by them
They're my size
They sound like me
Some of them are little versions
Of my mom

It's confusing, but now I know
There are boys like me and Dad
And there are girls, like Mom
But more importantly,
We little ones are kids

Being a kid is awesome
Cartoons, crayons, and playtime
No smartphones, no twitter, and no facebook
You have only one goal
Be crazy and have fun

I thought that this was forever
And then I went to school
I wasn't scared
But it was different...
In a good way

Making friends for life
Without having the foggiest idea
As to what that really meant
I'm glad that's how it starts
There's hope in childhood

Benjamin R Bray

I am first and foremost an educator. I live for my students and find the greatest joy in their success. I have been a poet since I was kid, but started taking it more seriously around my junior year in high school.
I mostly write poems about dealing with the emotional spectrum and going through introspective journeys. I also delve into the occasional homage to some of my favorite narratives such as Firefly, Power Rangers, etc.
To sum up: educator, writer, poet, super geek, and so much more ūüėÄ
