When I'm Grown Up


Awoke today with smiles and dreams
To live the life that's filled with beams
Reignite energy and grow in esteem
When I grow up, I'll design my theme

Fascinated by places I read of under trees
With freedom to go exploring in glee
No lights out nor sanctions I need to plea
When I'm grown-up, I'll go to bed at three

No books to read, nor words to scrawl
No rules to obey neither rolls to call
I won't be commanded to face the wall
Oh! Growing graciously, will free the thrall

I'll spend on chocolates all that I earn
Play in parks all day will be my concern
Adulthood will be fun and all I yearn
It's mama's choice not to enjoy and learn

I looked in the mirror and saw some grey
I read and scrawl and still obey
Is this what growing up pushes my way
In adulthood, life is not a bouquet
