My Path Runs Ahead of Me and My Plans

Canto Three

written by: Benjamin R Bray

@MrBray317

 

Everyone's favorite subject
Is either recess
Or lunch
I prefer dodgeball
And pizza

Counting up from one
To five
I had hoped
To keep playing dodgeball
And eating pizza

But then it wasn't
About having fun anymore
You're growing
They said
Changing

It's a phase
They said
But no one told me
That I would go through
Temporary insanity

It's a crazy time in your life
They said without knowing
Just how right they were
Have to survive
Have to make it to the next step on the path

 

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

Part 3 of my autobiographical series of poetry.

Benjamin R Bray

Writing my way through life's journey; finding inspiration in the people who make me feel like I deserve to be here. In their unconditional love that I find what little strength I feel I have to face this overwhelming world. Through my writing I find escape in expression of anything I'm feeling at the moment the pen makes contact with the paper.
