You stare me in the face
daring
challenging me with the doubt you instill.
Hoping I won't take that
step into my unknown
the scent of discovery
weaves its web
through my hair
and sticks to my clothes
you whisper
in my ear
with the sweet breath of knowledge
you look shiny and new
blinding me with your beauty
you can be my
worst nightmare
or my
ultimate high.
you entice children
and belittle adults.
a bully
and a best friend
God forbid I catch you at the wrong time
imagination destroyed by your words
making way for reality
for maturity the world demands
without you, though,
we would be nothing
and for that
I am truly grateful
