Can we handle it?
Working with youngsters, I sometimes notice a difference.
Yes, they are stupid, and slow. To understand, to let go, to be themselves.
They try too hard, to impress, to not copy, and to show.
As me and my contemporaries are getting there, I also notice sometimes.
We sprout knowledge and then wonder where it all came from.
And our bag of fears bursts open.
If we don't know where it lives, how will we find it when it takes a break?
