Little Man

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you
would have
only felt
the tinge
of
what’s to come,
you
would have
moved
to
the front
of the class,
spend
that
free period
to
figure
out
the loose change
of geometric shapes,
or
detailed
those participles that
danced
without cause.
Remember
the
time your hand
knew
the answer,
but
your
fear
spoke up
first?

Little
Man,
if you
would
have only
known
of
what’s to
come,
then
you
would
have ran
harder,
and
fallen
quicker.
You
would have
let those answers
become
questions,
and
you would
have
made those
paths
less about being
traveled,
and more
about being experienced.

Little
Man,
remember
when your hand
knew
the answer,
but your
fear
spoke
up first?
