He calls himself a Gamer, a Geek, a Dad, and a Bi-Polar Mess... I call him Mike. And he's a poet. :)

We change
And evolve
Who we are
And who the world
Sees,
A fight to move past
The three year old
We used to be

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Children of chaos,
We desire
Our orderly step-parent,
And all the promise
It offers,
Still we come face
To face,
A blind, idiot god
Scrambling,
All that we’ve built
Or imagined to be so

    Moving past the 3-year-old we used to be… Sometimes we think we’ve done so – moved past, moved on, gone beyond, grown up, matured – only to be confronted with the fact that really, we’re still stomping our feet and throwing tantrums. Just in more sophisticated ways. (Well, some people are sophisticated about it, I guess. I, for one, still stomp my foot and shout when I don’t get my way. 😉 )

    All that we’ve built
    Or imagined to be so

    Many of us fight hard to get away, to carve our own way… Only to find we’re walking in the footsteps of our forefathers (and mothers). It’s a difficult reality to reconcile, I think.
