I imagined life
To be a simple thing.
But when I grew up,
Everything began to stink!

Boys were introduced 
Into my already confusing life.
When I was 7 or 8, I think,
I was being a pretend wife.

Mud pies and dirt cakes,
Wasn't my idea of delicious.
Tea and water that wasn't there,
Seemed to be quite suspicious!

Running through the sprinklers,
Cooties spread all around.
Missing front teeth,
That when you'd talk made a whistling sound.

Believing there were monsters
Hidden under my bed.
Sleeping in my parents room,
"No more of this" they said.

I needed to grow up
And I really did.
But this life has been a rollercoaster ride,
I sure do miss being a kid!
