Tight Squeeze

The transition from boy to man is a complex squeeze.

Enclosed by life’s pressure I struggle to breathe.

Maybe I am not Ford Tough after all.

Life gives two options.

Continue to climb or you will not prevail.

I knew that one day I would grow.

I was unaware when that day would be.

My mindset changed.

Life changed accordingly.

Memories remind me of who I once was.

I then realize life cannot be recaptured from the past.

When I was a child.

I spoke like a child.

Reasoned like a child.

When I became a man I gave away childish things.
