That is all you know
Knees to the floor
And away you go
Reach out to touch
Giggle a little bit
You’re impressed by so much
Who are these others?
Why are we all here
Instead of home with our mothers
Fragile, but developing a core
Understanding, not understood
Get ready, there’s so much more
They’re everything I want to be
They’re so pretty
Why doesn’t everyone like me
I love you
Where do I want to go from here?
What the future holds, you haven’t a clue.
You’re in control of your life
Time to make your own decisions
Take the good with the strife
A job, a home
Maybe someone else is there
Or maybe you are still alone
To the top
Become successful, become a success
And once you do, never stop
Time to your husband or wife
Life to your child, pets, and each other
Love to live your life.
You’ve had your chance
The chance to build the shiny hard word floor
Where you can slow dance
Take in all in and look back
Smile at what you’ve done, at what you’ve been
Forget what you lack
Let your lips come together, and eyes close
What images dance on the back of your eyelids?
Feel no pain, as life says “good bye”, and goes.
