Growing Up

That in-between time in life
not still a kid, not yet adolescent
when finding a place
finding a voice
finding identity
feels impossible

When kid stuff feels juvenile ...
except when it's accidentally fun

And they (children of G-d)
are so weird
so strange in their changing
that we (children of G-d) are left confused, bewildered
wanting to stay away from them until they're normal again
staying away just when
- though they'd never admit it -
just when they need us closest
