My father at age 81, looking in wonder at the dials on a Russian Submarine. He was like a kid when he saw it docked by the peer, “Can we go see it?” I am 53, and do I see anything with such wonder?? I hope in time I can.

is it childish to be alive?
is it wrong to express displeasure
or pleasure fully?

do we lose a part of our humanity
when we long to express ourselves
but can not, we are adults?

i wish to regain my childlike wonder
for this horrid world
marveling at things like
ants, and worms, and all life

if that is childish, so be it
but it is that I would like to
in time accomplish
