 ABOUT
VICTORTOUCHE 
Victor Touche ? Actually, a 59 plus six year imposition on this planet. Who.... always wanted to slow down, explore the other side of his brain, and amount to something other than a paycheck. Of course the other side of me would argue paycheck first - more...

"Maturity Knocks" by victortouche
Your baby
Your darling

Your heart
on wheels

The light
of your life

is...
replacing you

Uh,
ouch

Yep,
hurts

Why?
'Tis natural

I,
as father
resent...this?

I
should be
ashamed

And
I am

Self,
its wants,
its demands
must die

I resist
the natural
culmination
of youth's
maturation

Something
we all
hope for

The mirror
is right

I
must face
the final
maturation

I
must...
grow up

Thought
I could
make it

to the grave

with my
inner child
still intact

With my
daughter's light
still mine

It's harder
than I thought
to realize

the problem
is just mine

As Samuel Clemmens
once said-

"Someone
must sit
on the sidelines
as...

the parade goes by."
