Journeys & Answers…

PenpusherpenI didn’t know I was going
to discover a truth
from the depths of the past

a childhood constrained by lies.
It seems we are coloured
by those early years,
I wonder,
can a life painting
be changed
by countless

What do you want to be when you grow up?” was a question I hated as a child… I didn’t know then  (I would stare at the questioner, hard…) and I don’t know now… I’ve not grown up you understand, in fact  never will this girl be grown up… a virtual Peta Pen … “Second star to the right, and straight on ’till morning.” … I refuse to age, I will put my foot down ‘n if I must be carried along by the years I’ll be kicking ‘n screaming ‘til I’m heard and taken notice of… NO more ageing, ‘tis the height of being ageist and I won’t stand for it… This year by year of being labelled, asked ‘your age please’ on forms, by anyone of a grown up nature. Surely you don’t need to ask, I’m so many years YOUNG for goodness sake… and I shall die young… That’s my story and I’m sticking to it… So there!!
