Smaller Skyscrapers

It was then

When the skyscrapers seemed smaller

That I realized that I had grown taller

 

A shrinking metropolis

An appropriate tribute to the moments passed by

With rust from time

 

My mother is no longer  Mom

She is Renee

Just like me

Human

Just like me

 

Although the world is changing 

I am now able to recognize

That within the storm

There is an eversteady pulse

 

A pulse that runs through me

Beside me

And with me

This poem is about: 
Me
