Things to Write About Tomorrow

I was a child and
All I wanted was to get away with staying up
Late watching movies and not
Worrying about tomorrow

I am an adult and
I can get away with staying up
Late watching movies but I
Worry all the time about tomorrow
Muscles tense and thoughts focused on
Detensing those muscles

I spend time, while the
Movie’s runnin’
Thinking about how, as a child
All I wanted was to get away with staying up
Late watching movies and not
Worrying about tomorrow

    Grown up worries are so much harder than childhood ones that’s for sure. Great prose Anya. 🙂

      They probably weigh respectively on the heart -- I remember my childhood problems seeming like they could end the world -- but I think in either case, it matters whether or not you feel like you have the power to do anything about them. Thanks for the comment, Dani. 🙂
