Act Your Age?

You’re acting like
such
a
child

we say
with derision

and one
Sad
Hopeless
Thought
springs to mind

Yet Hopeful
in a way

real children
still
look up at the stars
and imagine magic,
make a wish

while childish adults
stop looking up
at all.

Stars are stars –
burning balls of gas
light years away
with no mystical powers
to change a damn thing

it is what it is

give me “real”
children
any
day
no matter the age

as long as they believe
that wishes
still
come
true
