Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

He's a kid trying to keep up with his peers.
He's a kid
in an adult's world
trying to get along
with all the pretend
boys and girls.
He wants to understand
and he worries,
he wants to play
their games
but with supervision
he's not allowed
and they're free to roam
a virtual world
of bullies and bullets
that he has no access too.
Trying to explain it
is a losing game
when all the other
pretend boys and girls
can fight and die
in digital wars
play criminal and soldier.
He's a kid
navigating a pretend world
stuck with cartoons and cars
and an imagination
that will take him so far
if he can just hold on
a little longer
to grow up.
