Growing Older

A child’s mind cracked open wide

For learning and growing

Walking all alone, their own stride

With confidence showing.

 

But soon they will grow much too big

And forget their own self.

They will have to search hard and dig,

Wiping dust off the shelf.

 

They will look back with a smile

On all the things they learned-

How could they forget? A long while…

My, how the tables turned!
