Issue 2.3 – Poetry

Let us pausefor a moment and pray. (27)


I don’t remember

growing up.

I don’t remember

when Jesus stopped being normal

and “love thy neighbor” didn’t always apply.

I don’t remember

when swearing became okay

or when gossip became common.

I don’t remember

when my appearance began to matter

or when boys stopped being gross.

I don’t remember

when politics were irrelevant

and skin color didn’t matter.

I don’t remember.

It just kind of happened.

I don’t remember

growing up.
