Treated Like an Adult

The years weigh heavy around the eyes
But the mind still clasps the rag doll tight
Locked behind amber eyes
Simplistic thoughts cascade
In complex ways
Only unhappy when others say
As an adult only you are to be treated
And they took your doll away

Note: sadly this was a real situation, a lady who went to the handicap centre with my uncle, I remember her with her toys and then what happened when she was considered an adult and had them taken away.
