when you get older

I looked up at him as he made her cry

He turned to me, almost, but not quite embarrassed and said:

“you’ll understand when you get older”

On tv, someone yelled at someone to “go get the yayo”

I looked at him confused as he looked back at me and said:

“you’ll understand when you get older”

Today, I’m older

And some things I do understand now.

Some things I still don’t. Even when I act like I do.

That’s where we’re the same.
