The Serious People

Regret
12"x12" mixed media on canvas

I woke up one day
& realized We had grown up;
Lost were the shadowed youths
laughing together in the night

Now we were the Serious People
wearing professional faces
& lecturing teens with cynical wisdom
that decisions made in haste
are the clich├ęs we regret
years later
when we are too weary
to Change.
