I Have Grown


Mother listen

Father listen

Listen to me

Listen please

Please it’s all I want

Please it’s all I need

I need to make my own choices

I need you to let me do it

It will help me grow

It will make me learn

Learn what I need to do

Learn to be better

Better than what has been

Better late than never

Never forget

Never say no

No time to lose

No reason to hold me back

Back from what can only help me

Back from the sunshine

Sunshine in my life

Sunshine on my head

Head bursting with independent thoughts

Head full of brains

Brains of power

Brains fully grown

Grown enough

Grown up strong
