Of Age 2

Of Age 2

A Chapter by Dave Brown

🙌

A recent piece by that excellent writer Kaz

Had me thinking about my coming of age

Wondering, when was that specific moment

Was it when I got my first job

Don’t thing so,

The buds and I continually drank that away

Was it that first time

Don’t think so,

She rejected me for only being interested in one thing

My first car

Nah, I had a million

Getting Married

Well, we hadn’t learned much about birth control

Our first child

Well, we hadn’t learned much about birth control

Our first dog

Hmuum

As I look back, there were no silver lockets or magic gates that opened

In fact, I’m not so sure that it has taken place yet

Something to look forward to

I have heard that young men dream of the future
because they have no past
and old men dream of the past
because they have no future.

At this age ... best to enjoy the trip.

Good one Dave

I find myself wondering if this is a "guy thing"? Most of your reviews are from old guys who have the same problem, searching for a meaningful moment that probably passed them by long ago. Still, I love this poem for the reveal that it is. You are not a very revealing poet, so it's fun to get a little deeper peek into your demented Sasquatch past. I think the problem is having the idea there are such memorable moments in the first place. I think women learn at a much younger age that this is not going to be an easy or momentous trek thru life (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I generally believe in specific moments, when I can remember them myself.
This poem is great reminder.

Has a confessional quality to it. I think I came of age when Uncle Sam said so. Based on that experience, I don't ever want to come of age again.

Ha! Good one Dave! And don't do it! Peter Pan had it right. I've slipped into my second childhood, and I'm not coming out. :) Cheers.

Thanks for visit
You're very funny; nope that specific moment didn't come, darn!!! but....you still have something to look forward to; I love your humor and the way you construct your poems...they really have deep meaning, but you put it in a way that is fun to read with a bit of a twist on the end....great!!!!
Best, Betty

LOL that moment for me was when I decided to buy all of the same socks thereby alleviating the necessity to pair them:/ no... that's not it:/ I guess it hasn't happened for me too
