Tribute to Peter Pan

growing up.

what does that even mean anymore

it doesn’t just mean learning

it means learning to doubt yourself

everything you thought you knew

you felt for sure you would never do

everything you knew you would do


it doesn’t just mean growing

it means growing to hate yourself


dreams soaring, free, unbounded

tugged back down to Earth, with more force you thought could ever be mustered




it’s complicated.
