At Thirteen

It is easy to believe at thirteen
that the world swirls around you

all eyes are on your hair,
your clothes, your shoes and nose

a slight flaw upon your skin
sends you into a tailspin

you will refuse to walk out the door
there is nothing easy about being thirteen.

If you survive there is so much to discover

what is vital and what can be endured
you're still important but as you grow

you will become other centered

and learn how life energy really flows.
