Diving into Life

In the austere eyes of adulthood
Longing for the days of lollygagging
Between soapy bubbles floating in the air
Splashing in the warm waters of the summer sun
And searching for the fairies in the woods
A hankering for the freedom of childhood
The mild consequences of reckless abandon
Of an identity waiting to be discovered and built
Nothing set in stone
Life as fluid as the lake waters
Gently accepting the brazen cliff dive
From fearless youth unacquainted with anxiety
