NaPoMo 10: Rite of Poetry

As time passes
a boy must become a man
leaving behind the carefree days of youth
to shoulder the weight of life
but a poet will always write
of love and fear
of sun and rain
of seasons turning again and again
old times and new the poet remains
to record the memories
that is the journey
from here to there
from a boy poet
to a man of words in verse
