to get as big as a man can get

big-head(morning by Brooke Stevens)

The biggest trick

is to gain faith

and grow

without subscribing

to one particular book of stories,

set of beliefs,

or school of thought.

As more years

empty out

all around me,

I see people

getting smaller

with age.

Smaller bodies,

smaller homes,

smaller appetites,

smaller brains.

Which I find strange.

My aim is to get

as big as a man can get.

To fill up on experience,

and get opened up

by just the right amount of darkness

so that I can clearly see

the light.
