Poetry from Brianna Dawn.

Peter Pan

the shoelaces of adulthood
are pulled too tightly

how many pairs of shoes
have we walked in? how
many sizes worn since
we wore those silly grins?

… dreaming about all
the treasures and monsters
still buried within our
hearts, left slumbering
on shelves, never taken
out for walks or runs …

never let free into the
world to create adventures
to tell –

that’s why our hearts
find fairytales bittersweet

the untold stories of
heartbeats trying
to find their footing
in our worlds, but we chose
to put different shoes on our feet
