the cape

from my booklet “words within 2018”

 i don’t know if it was just 
 the innocence of our age and our times
 along with watching the original Peter Pan,
 we all had capes, some
 just less visible than others
 but we were all invincible
 and when our teacher sent the note home to our parents
 to explain to us, that we must stop
 jumping off the classroom tables and chairs, because
 we could not fly…
 that did not stop us
 we were destined…
 to become ourselves :)
