I won’t grow up!/こどものままで

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt:“All Grown Up.”

I don’t think I ever grew up.

Perhaps because I am childless.

Or, maybe I forever quest for freedom, resenting the past when I was put to be a responsible child, and rebelling against the concept of being the reliable one.

I don’t think I ever grow up, rather wish to grow and evolve constantly until I die.

I don’t think I ever want to grow up, albeit I should, must or need to.

 

 

未熟なままでいい。
大人になりすぎるのが怖いだけかもしれないけれど。
いつまでも新しい発見に喚起されたい。
我が儘だと咎められるかもしれないけれど。
純情さはとっくに失ったかもしれないけれど、
素直に自然を、人生を見ていたい。

    Not so much growing “up” as growning “out,” it happens in its own way for each.

    I love the fresh perspective of seeing “grown up” as a process of growing and evolving, as opposed to an endpoint. Beautiful poem!
