“Too Young”

Fiction. Based on a True Youth.

When so little of life
has presented itself to me,
I’m afraid my ignorance shows
like neon lights on my skin.

That my lack of ability
or experience is overwhelming
like walking through New York
at night, but I’m on the subway.

Gliding through life
underground and unaware.
and my pen wilts in my hand,
old and dried up
because I’m already
out of things to say.
