do your own laundry and
cook your own meals
it's about realizing that
not all people are treated equally,

that you should treat
people unequally, too
it's making mistakes
and falling in love
and getting your heart broken
it's about realizing
that you're a part of
something so much
bigger than you think
growing up is, simply, growing up.

Creatures between sleep and religious sight

Zooming through a blanched society
You compare your splendid soul to theirs
Yours is pure, yours is free
It shrills and oozes with pounding bliss
And delights in the majesty of knowing
But these wondrous happenings occur only in health
When your steaming hot food waits on a silver plate
When you have no troubles, sighs or woes
When your mind is limitless and content
You easily delight in the majesty of knowing

When your feet are swollen and cut
When your children are staggering and fainting
When your sore eyes stream prayers for sustenance

The laughter everywhere,

You're the world to me,

You hold the key,
