The growth that comes from the journey toward adulthood

Learn, my child
Learn to bounce back when you bump your knee,
And to laugh when you feel like crying

Learn my child
Learn that not all good things in life are fair,
That what feels like a loss could be a win

Learn my child
Learn to love even when it seems pointless,
And to make choices better than the last

Learn now, my child
For when the wind blows later in life,
You’ll be firm
And instead, blow them away

I write about what makes me feel. I create to expand the boundaries and learn about the world and hopefully a little about myself in the process.
