(Just a thought – not really a poem; just in case someone calls you “silly”)
Some people might have the notion that
while you are on your journey to adulthood
you must trade your silliness for a book
on proper behavior.
I challenge why, when we grow up,
we tend to put away our laughter,
our childish warp, and
the great sense of hilariousness
of our youth.
This is a bit like being introduced
to a room full of emptiness,
Laughter and silliness blasts anxiety,
it makes you feel good, sleep better,
and love your neighbor a little more.
Ultimately, I don’t think we need to
read a book on being a proper adult
or trade in our enormously young
and alive apparatus for a staunch,
stiff, and boring persona.
Where Is The Child?
It’s in all of us – If suppressed in the past
it can be unleashed once again
We should have the same two wishes
at 22, 42 and 62.
Have Fun and Have Fun.
Now we can not always maintain a
fun course – That thing called life
steps right on our faces from time to time.
But if you can be an “adult” and still be
called “silly”, well I think you should
consider that a compliment.
You know where the child is
because it’s alive inside of you.
