Young and Care-Free

I once was a child, young and care-free,

I acted as a child, “Mom, I found a dollar!”

I played as a child, “I want to play the teacher!”

I thought as a child, “I cannot wait to grow up!”

One day it hit me,

I was no longer a child.

I acted as an adult, “Mom, I had to pay taxes.”

I was the teacher, “Okay, little sis, what is five plus ten?”

I thought as an adult, “Oh, to be a child, young and care-free again!”
