10/29 - Roses Turned SourMature

Today I said goodbye to children and childhood

I said goodbye to gray-haired crazies I love

And the "Brad Pitt is watching you" piece of tape on the wall

Today a Freshman boy said something along the lines of "you look like fighting ostriches"

Today I opened my arms to the sky on the calm waters of an empty lake

Balancing on the thin shell of a boat with no name, I stood and accepted fate

Today the roses in my room turned sour

Sweet roses turned sour

The End
