Baby

Seven Stages of Life

First of all, you are a baby

Sleeping and eating

Crying and puking

Not walking, not speaking

Then, you are a child

Making new friends

Playing with toys

Hoping the fun will never end

Then, you are a teenager

At school every day

Homework every night

All work and no play

Then, you are an adult

No parents in control

In charge of yourself

A new life to enroll

Then, you become a worker

Working all day long

Arriving late the next morning

Wondering what you have done wrong

Then, you are a parent

With children all around

Kicking screaming and shouting

Making your eardrums pound

Then, you are a grandparent

More children in your house

Wishing your hearing aid

Made sounds as quiet as a mouse.
