When I grow up I want to be a kid

Childhood

Pure innocence dwells

And everything is novel 

Watch them laugh and learn

 

Take on adventures

Pure bliss in every aspect 

No worries or care

 

Other than the dark

And a monster here and there 

Noth'n mum can't handle 

 

Adolescence 

Conformity looms 

Obligations are present 

High aspirations

 

Awareness of self 

Conflicting battles within 

Decide on a path 

 

Adulthood 

Member of rat race

Meet societies' demands 

Be all but content 

The End
