Growing Pains #Haiku #Poetry

A haiku written by Lee Sonogan

Growing Pains - Album by Not On Tour | Spotify

I have sympathy for young people, for their growing pains, but I balk when these growing pains are pushed into the foreground, when you make these young people the only vehicles of life’s wisdom. Wislawa Szymborska

Hanged offence taken,

Cog behaviour training,

Auxesis strucken.

I wonder why it is that we find some days so much more oppressive than others, for no apparent reason. Is it growing pains – or spiritual trial? Once they’re over, the world looks quite a different place again. Dietrich Bonhoeffe
