The Wild Child

The Wild Child

“They”
want him to grow UP and 
STOP
stomping in mud puddles,
climbing trees, and befriending bugs,
STOP
shadowing butterflies,
weaving daisy chains,
bestowing dandelion bouquets,
STOP
wearing his sister’s tutu,
tangoing at T-ball
pirouetting across home plate,
STOP
singing at the bus stop, and
hugging random strangers
at the supermarket
but, (honestly)
you hope
(no matter what)
that he’ll never
(ever)
stop.
