This is the way it is. The poem nails it. A flurry of devil may care activities as we approach the settling down period. Then the realization of where we are and the gratitude that we are in a safer meaningful place.
The reflection of how we made it safely and happily.
While I was reading your poem about how mixed up thoughts and way of doing things, when you were a teen.
Are so true. I'm sure you know that your poem has a very good rhyming pattern and a nice, even flow.
Ahh, the joys of youth. We were reckless then, but like your son, we all grew up. Well, some of us did! Another lovely poem, Jaybird, you've been writing them for a long time now. I enjoyed this one. Well done! :)) Sandra xxx
I wasn't the greatest kid either. In the end I turned out okay. My mom told me once that me doing all my crazy stuff was normal, all kids do that stuff. It's the being able to level out after it all that matters.
Your poem Growing With Time was extremely well written. Normally I would suggest adding a picture but your poem conjured up so great emotional imagery I would not change anything. The only thing I would change is categorizing the poem as commentary and philosophy instead of general but noting within the poem itself.
"Growing with Time"
Was an old but we'll written piece.
It read well and Flowed well with no Grammar Issues while it was rich in Theme and Imagery.
Adjective and Objective Contents were both Excellent and Exceptional while Descriptive Measures aligned Perfectly.
