Growing Up

Not yet an adult but no longer a child
In this liminal space of confusion
Puberty and adolescence
The teenage awkward stage
Of changes, hormones and talks
Embarrassment and shyness abound
Wishing the earth would swallow you
To escape mortifying parents
Trying to understand and bridge
The gargantuan generational gap
Getting larger with each propagation
Through it we survive
Transitioning to functioning adults
Ready to repeat the cycle once more.
