Ode to Complication

Ode to complication

How you have grown

From such a little boy

To full blown man

You used to have no role 

In my life

Absent at times

Now more full time

Coming on stage 

During the Holidays

Bending truths

Subjecting relationships

To misunderstandings

How I would not fear you

Growing up

But as I age

I see the ripples 

Growing on a sleepy lake

Unfortunately it seems 

You have arrived

Not ethereal 

But on my life’s front door

Now that your here

I will now have to learn to adapt


Accommodate this new arrival

I wish you not the best

But that we can both exist
