Growing Up

Awarded Excellent in Literary Arts


It is a funny thing, 

Something only time can bring

A thing which to I want to cling

It cannot be rushed or slowed

You can only grow

Everyone starts as a “chico”

Then you learn to walk

Soon your able to talk

Once you can read the clock

You realize your growing up

Unable to backup

You are developed 

Growing up can be so tough

Don’t go huff and puff

Realize you’ve grown enough

Later in life with many duties

You see childhood was a breeze

And wish time would freeze

As your hair turns gray

Those around you wish for you to stay

And then you drift away
