Nouns & Pronouns

Nouns & Pronouns

nouns
can be
either 
subjects or objects
like the infant
as subject
to the object
of its mother

some nouns
never mature
some nouns
remain stuck
eternally
as subjects

most nouns
mature
to become
both subjects
and objects

most nouns
as they mature
grow proud
to be more
than simple subjects

some pronouns
mature
to become
we
sometimes
then other times 
me
depending
on the needs
of me's and we's 

for mature pronouns
the transition
from 
me to we
from we to me
is rather seamless
effortless
while 
for others
it's excruciating
and traumatic
while some
of our most mature
nouns
can even transition
into verbs
and adjectives
with the assurance
and confidence
of their
safe return
to a noun

some nouns
even enjoy
this alteration
this exploration
through all 
they can be

while some nouns
never mature
to become anything more
than subjects
as infant
to their object
of mother
just as
some pronouns
never mature 
to understand
the me
in the we 

some nouns
are too comfortable
in their position
as the eternal subject
of every sentence
to ever become
anything else

and what are these
shapeshifting
nouns and pronouns
donning
me for we
then we back to me
what are these
polymorphs
of subjects and objects
of adverbs
now nouns
now adjectives?

what is
the authenticity
of a noun
its baseness
and simplicity
or its
sophistication
in becoming more
than a base
subject
or object?

perhaps
some nouns
possess the wisdom
of what they are:
the basest 
most vulgar
of nouns
some 
awkwardly pretending
to be
more than they are
others
resigned
without pretense
to never be more
than 
the simple
subjects
of the simplest sentences
they are
