Poem #202 of 365

I see you shifting in your body,
adjusting shoulders and weight
to take on a new disposition.

Are you ready to wear a new role?
Can you learn specific lines, can
you speak them in the correct voice?

I am patient, watching you age
into the desired flavor and tint,
a popular vintage that will draw
new fans to you.

I think you can do this, I know
you will grow, and all I'll eventually
need to do is step aside and let you be.

[watching Dom and Bre transition into a new young woman]
