"A Teen Can Have a World to Fight" or How to Own your Power and Grow into a Real Man!"
A teen can have a world to fight
when the walking wounded
keep blocking his very light
A teen sometimes loses sight
as he stumbles in the dark
more left-over, that to the right
A teen feels day from night
sensing danger at his side
knowing 'real' from hype
A teen can live others fright
picking up on vibrations
'acting out' when time is not ripe
A teen must be his own hero
speaking truth now told
starting from ten.. down to zero
A teen need not be De Niro
lashing out at authority
capsized boat, tossed to and fro
A teen can be fearless or foe
swaggering drunkard bum
or, paid to be real, as is Bono
A teen stubs his stubborn toe

yet, the value of gems, can only grow ...
Teenagers have always have a hard time,
'roughing' it, through adolescence, and beyond.

have more hope for the male species.

Actually, this poem was going to be about the supposed
predator who initiated contact with my son, yesterday, in
the back alley.
Right after I left my son for a whole 20 minutes!
A young Fillipino 'man' came out of nowhere, right after
he noted that I had left the vicinity. And, when I came
back onto the scene, he just as quickly disappeared.
The minute I spotted him and he saw me .. Vamoose.
Another story to be told. Same old psychology of old ..
How interesting that in my pic, taken just before this
incident, and one more police report .. filed, soon after,
by King Kaelin, himself, at his magical Mother's sage
suggestion, my son was reading one of our favourite
magazines: " Scientific American Mind."
The article of the day was on "Self Sabotage" and
I would say that both Mommy K and shining Son ..
upon this enchanted eve, once again, did own their
And, that is when you are made aware .. that you really
have - already won!!!!!
