You know what they say,
Don’t behave in a childish way,
You’re not a kid anymore,
These things should’ve been done afore,
You can’t sit like that,
You can’t eat like that,
Don’t you understand?
You’re not a part of that band.
To them, I ask,
Why can’t I still be a child?
Why can’t I explore the wilds?
Why can’t I make mistakes?
Why can’t I keep things at stake?
You cannot take away my liberty,
I don’t accept your surety,
I don’t feel that adulthood is fun,
All they do is run,
With the age,
Rises the rage,
Walking down the stream,
There’s a suppressed beam.
Their laughter is somewhere lost,
The sunny days have been replaced by the frost.
But, you know what they say,
You can always relive your childhood days,
You can melt a snow-flake,
You can start-over again,
Living life like child,
It’s never too late to explore the wild.
