I used to wonder if I could ‘make you proud’
But then I was afraid I’d get too loud
My strides and successes would make you green
And then I’d stop chasing my longed-for dream

But now things have changed and we’re older
Our relationship seems a bit colder
You’re concerned about trips and travel
And can’t just lay on the gravel

At first, you sneered at my learning
But now you can see I was yearning
To pull myself up by the knee highs
And keep my pie free of the fruit flies

And now that your life has slowed down
I can dress myself up as a clown
To put on a show for all to see
Then somehow admire of me!

About bognetta

Love has been so much more powerful than other people's control. I think it's all love, but sometimes it doesn't feel like love. That is because so many people are defensive, protective, and do not care to trust in that four letter!
