I am a kid!




I am a kid
trapped in an old man’s body
i fly kites
i perpetually chase insects and frogs
i still often gaze in wonder through a magnifying glass
i still think that grown-ups are yucky
i love watching toads in the woods
i keep fish and shrimp as pets and stare at them for hours
i hunt fossils and love everything about dinosaurs and prehistoric life
i unendingly question
and i still learn best away from
boring school

  1. After watching my Father do something foolish, my Mother would always say to me, “Holly, men don’t grow up, they just get bigger. ”
    Yup. I married a large child myself 😏


  2. I too still enjoy some of my favorite childhood hobbies. It helps keep us young at heart! 😁

  4. you defiantly do not have an old mans’ body and i should know. it is lean and muscular from chasing frogs, bugs, fish and me.


  5. You’ve found it all and experienced it all … and told us about it via pictures and poems Tom, making us the richer for your adventures.


  6. Wonderful post. Curiosity, engagement, the ability to have fun, and a lack of pretension — all marks of a healthy child. Hooray to them all.
