Teenage Minds

When we are young we just need 
a dry diaper; to suckle a full breast
when we long for more
when we need to crawl and explore
we grab hold of the object
to stand and we fall but we strive for more

We walk we run we fall we cry
we grab hold of the object
and we strive to do more
school, sports, church
we grow more and more

We think for ourselves 
we rebel, we reject, we recant
we no longer grab hold of the object
we now push away from it

We are smarter, faster
we do not need to grab hold 
of the object

We hate the object
we detest it

Goodbye mom and dad ...
