I CAN'T COME OUT TO PLAY ANYMORE
I have been grounded from my youthful joys
and my friends are all I have
they stand by me and they're bad
the tricks they play the ploys they display
are fun for a while, but dangerous in the end
I try to fit in and their games I do win
no cheers are found from the older section and adolescence is conceived to grown-up fashion
with the things I've learned I still apply
It's not too clear and I'm still a little shy
factors explode and life moves on but still I am the same
I try to bring myself to a higher point
a point of recognition and disdain
but as I reach the top of the mountain
I stumble head first back down to the bottom
it was not rocks nor stumps that tripped me up
but the wild caravan of humans that I am so consciencly engaged in
maybe I am week maybe dumb
maybe even too errogant to understand the people that bring out the worste in me
and when the worste is generated around the worste it blossoms into a nothing that can only be filled by distance
a distance that will lead to new friends and old walks of life
so now at this time I will give my solumn vowe, and graciously give my heart a sad prick with words I don't want to say or do and tell you that I'm sorry but
I CAN'T COME OUT TO PLAY ANYMORE

It will take a few starts and a few tumbles before any of us reach that sought after apex of the mountain. But, after that it's all downhill and the ride seems much too fast.
So enjoy your various attempts, you'll get there eventually.
Find a different treck, a different playground!
And oh yes, I enjoyed reading your prose, it reminded me of times past.
