Sui Iuris

"I can do it myself,"

When I was three,

I fed myself,

At five,

I dressed myself,

At seven,

I wrote and read,

At nine,

I would play outdoors alone,

At eleven,

I could do my own hair,

At thirteen,

I walked to school alone,

At fifteen,

I dated by myself,

At seventeen,

I went to college across the country,

And it was there I learned

That my sui iuris

Was only half true.

The End
