There was a child that used to be
Wide-eyed and cheerful, full of glee
And then one day all got to see
That grownup person who is me.
I’d like to be the way I was
But that can’t be I’m sure because
Along the way we took a pause
To teach us how a grownup does.
One finds that learning’s never done
The process blurs once you’ve begun
No guarantee ’tis always fun
The race continues till it’s done !
