I wanted in

like all kids looking on to the adult world

I wanted in

free to drink smoke

do whatever the fuck I wanted

with who how what when anytime

but it wasn’t like that

oh no

many of the adults were still kids

needing permissions

scared of their own shadows

frightened of the man in blue

the priest in black

the myriads of followers those who could not

dare not make a decision

for fear of offending not knowing

nobody cares in the end

or now

people are a disappointment

was a hard thing to discover

not just to me but themselves

the child they were with dreams

what they were going to do when they grew up
