Reality Through Naive Eyes - Poem by Christopher Michael McGarry

We came so far, we grew up so fast
I felt too little and I made nothing last
hardly anything, for what I did i know
it was something that was, it was something
too small and for that I'm here because
I just wanted to say, is why I came here
today, i just wanted to say
that it's all too familiar here, all too scary
not at all feared but all too wary
lives must have tiptoed, quiet as can be
through change's window, hidden from all to see
I just wanted to say, came here to say
I wish it was something caught in the way
oh I could be a hilltop covered in rain
or a drying desert thirsting the same
how a child comes craving, behaving for life
to mother's sweet breast, the heaven in sight
preparing himself for truth's abuse
after living in detail, I'd wished I could choose.
