You are not 13 years old.


You are not 13 years old.

You are not 13 years old.
Or so I'm told.
Stop acting powerless.

Is it true power,
To be a big man,
To be a killer in visions,
And a slave to your feelings?

You've been obsessed.
For years, a mess.
And I tell you - it doesn't matter.
Your betrayers are nobodies.

Your enemy - is yourself.

Always has been in this area.
Stop fighting.
Stop trying not to think.
You are not 13 years old.
You are free unless you choose not to be.

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
