we’re someone else

the way growing up works

is that we grow up to be unmade

if only to be made again, anew;

and it happens to all of us

at least once:

first we are ourselves and then

for some strange reason

we become somebody else

not who we thought we were

not what people said we were

but the way we were, have always been and

the way we now are.
