Journal Today Jan. 7, the boy is growing up


Rebellion rising
Your young man pride
Bashes against my
Old mom stances
Your energy dances
Of social whirls, computers and girls
Strain the reins against my
What about your grades your future
Financial gains?
Your spark- a light against the dark
Alight on the wind
Of tomorrow’s whims
Your hopes your schemes
Fill your veins your breath
While memories of your sweet
Toddler lisps
Eclipse your boyhood’s death
                                                       You sing of your strength
                                                       I mourn the loss of your
Open Innocence,
Legos, blankies, macaroni,
Of simpler dilemmas.
