The pangs of Childhood

So much

expended

loosening

the tentacles

to fuel

the rise

only to surmise

that the

pinnacle

yearned and lusted

for

was

all for naught.

The reality

reeks of

calamity

listlessly

endeavoring to be

fired

from a job whose

description was not

as advertised

perks

spelled out with

a wink and nod

are not part

of Adulthood.

And…

its workforce

cries out

to

God

while

wistfully, hoping

to be smote

with

a demotion

back

as we should.

Longing for the

best job

that we didn’t

love

or appreciate

at that juncture

the esteemed role

of being a

kid

in the department

of childhood.

      1. Definitely. This is the point I’m always trying to make to my students and nieces and nephews. Being a kid is the best job you’ll ever have– slow down and enjoy it! I know I would love to go back to those days! lol
