When I was young,
maybe about 12,
I would come home
and my Mom would ask me
“Where have you been?”

“Nowhere. I just went for a walk.”

“Who did you go with?”

“No one. I just felt like exploring.”

Oh, I wish that I had been able to say:

But Mom was busy and I was just a kid.
Some things are better to
keep to myself.
