Growing up

When you play in the dirt,
and come home filthy.
You don’t straight away eat the cookies.
That’s growing up unhurt.

When you fall in love and break-up,
all your life you loathe yourself.
You move on and wait for someone better.
That’s simply you growing up.

When you are an aide,
and you learn all that you need.
You are still not the perfect being.
That’s growing up on a crusade.

When you show your skills,
and religiously work round the clock.
You are surrounded by greedy lumberjacks.
Growing up certainly kills.

When you walk side by side with your friend
and you don’t care about the world.
You are prone to emote.
You keep growing up till the end.
