Growing Up

I walk along the golden road.
I stop,
and I pluck a dandelion.

My fingers coil tightly around its stem.
I take a deep breath,
and blow.

Its embellishments are stripped away, leaving only a weed,
and I forgot to make my wish.

Time does not stop for the golden road.

My feet are dragged forward, and they scrape off the paint.
