My Path Runs Ahead of Me and My Plans

Canto Two

written by: Benjamin R Bray



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



Part 2 of my autobiographical series of poetry.

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.
