The Transition


Yesterday I was a kid
Playing kid games with shes claiming it was dating
We always talk about love, we were just debating
Saying we knew love not knowing we were crawling
Then I was shot by by cupid
My eyes opened
My heart started beating
My joints started moving
My skin started feeling
My head started thinking
I started breathing
meaning I started living
in the true realms of love undisputed
Cupids arrow killed my immaturity
Filled me with purity
and thought me Love not immorality
I grew from growth to a level beyond reality
I died in darkness to live in brightness
I found totality and forgot doubts of impossibility
i stopped the informality to take responsibility
of having one and only
true love
I stop to fly around pretending to be a dove
Love made me Me, no jokes
Love made me a Man and this is The Transition

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
