Growing in

Growing up is easy:
a question of genetics
and vegetables.

I want to witness him
growing in

learning the names of his moods
like pets
like bullies

digging a tunnel to his intuition
so he can find his way
to answers
in the dark

becoming the most courageous version
of himself
the honest one

I want to ask him
one day
what he thinks about everything
and watch as he paints me
a self-portrait
surely different
from the one I started
even before
he was born.
