I know the things adults say –
apparently I am one myself.
I want you to know
that none of it is true.
It might kill the pair of us, but…
do what you want.
Make all the mistakes.
Surprise yourself.
I will be there when needed,
and do my best to understand.
there is one thing adults say
(and something we can’t seem to do very well)
that makes some sense to me:
Be yourself.
