Beyond Simplicity

When one is young and deeply moved
By vastness of the complexities of life,
Pushing them aside to make room
For dreams harboring all tomorrows,
Attempting to put on hold, life's many woes
In innocence walking over a one way bridge.
And once it's crossed ... childhood dreams
Assume an alien adult's expected point of view.
Bridge collects toll from ... those who stood
