Know It All

 

When you were really young

did you like to dress up

in your mother’s

or father’s

clothes.

Grown up let’s pretend;

we’re adults now,

we know all the answers.

Then dress-up over

back to being kids again,

knowing that your parents

know everything needed

to keep you safe,

to help you grow.

Childish vision,

the myth of adulthood,

knowledge to make

the right decisions

always.

The problem being this --

it simply isn’t true,

at least as far as I’m concerned;

I don’t know the right decisions,

I don’t have the answers,

I’m as clueless now as then,

so still I play

pretend’.
