Childhood Forts

I just came to the realization
that my childhood tree fort
was a very enlightening part
of my self discovery.

When you're young
and you have a fort
You fill it with everything
you think you'll ever need.

Real and pretend.

You know what you need to survive there
the rest of your life.

You cram it with all your hopes and dreams. Cookies and pictures of girls. Ninja turtles and nurf balls. Books and music. Flashlights and stuffed friends.

It was so simple then.
