An Ode to the Boys Who Let Me Catch Frogs

To the boys I caught frogs with

Summer of '16

You invited me down to the creek

For the first time in a while, I felt welcomed

Boys my age weren't as kind as you

Befriending me but not as one of them

Did you know I was one of you?

Did you see that little boy yearning to be let out?

The one I saw but looked right through

The one that made me wish I was like a boy

Boys like the ones that catch frogs

Thank you to the boys that made that dream true

Just for a bit
