Growing Up

Growing up is a little
One directional - out,
Across, down, beyond,
Are as valid as the 
Leaves reaching for
The sun.

To be a vine and embark
Past the trunk
To clever side ways
And accidental falls
Is worthy adulation
A self encroach 
That validates 
Wherever you park.

Cash on hand
Friends in the bush
Two of the latter
Beats a million formers
A certain knowledge
Pairing carefully 
With life as dialectic
Conversation process
Eating goal-orientation
And never looking 
Forward or back.
