15. When I Grow Up

When I grow up I want to fly,

To reach up and touch the sky,

To laugh, smile and run free,

When I grow up I want to be a better me,

To lay in grass with the sun on my face,

To eat ice cream and get it all over the place,

When I grow up I want to be proud,

To tell my children to stop being loud,

To be surrounded by family and friends,

When I grow up I want a peaceful end,

But for now I want to be young and wild,

In this moment I want to remain as a child.
