A Lifetime Ago

At the very dawn of day

A lifetime ago

I was a newbon child

Teeter tottering around through my dreams

Until I woke up

Then I became a toddler

Hyper and unstoppable

Running around aimlessly

Like a bee flitting here and there

Just everywhere

Until finally I became a kid

Taming my outbursts

Timing my activities

Responsibility beginning to prepare me

Finally, I became a teenager

And he broke my heart

After she told me she would ask

Him who he liked, she didn't say

But he totally did and like I was like


Then, you told her

Who told me

Then, in that moment

You forced me into growing up

And I'm an adult now
