Growing Moment

A Boy’s Grand Plan


Heart of a boy

whose arms pull and surround his best bud

crack of the bat

jump in the mud


Talk of snakes

and things that are gross

a playful shove

brotherly love


A wrestling match

rolling on the ground

screaming and hollering

snorting weird and unusual sounds


“Miss me, miss me, now you gotta kiss me!”

interrupts the heart of a boy

when he notices

the one whose hair is curly

and creates a stomach filled joy


Heart of a boy

turns into

Heart of man

leading into the next phase

of the almighty grand plan.
