Lilliputian Me And Lilliputian You This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   Little me and little you

The life we had of ease,

How true

Lilliputian me and lilliputian you



the lilliputian problems that seemed brobdignagian

And numerous fights that were so often

No value behind them, no point intended

Lilliputian me and lilliputian you



Short we were in height and thought

But tall we were in conceit and naught

The life we had a long time ago

Lilliputian me and lilliputian you



Fads there were

And fads we followed

But dumb they were and us real shallow

Lilliputian me and lilliputian you



Thinking now as I look back

To never do again such foolish things

Now I've grown, my decisions of true importance

Lilliputian me and lilliputian you



Soul so pure at 15 years old, said I

So smart I am

At this age, my peak

Lilliputian me and lilliputian you



But then I became an old woman

I'm so old at 87

As I face my death bed I know,

Lilliputian me and lilliputian you



I lived my life so ignorantly

Each time I think I know it all

All those times, until now at 87

Lilliputian me and lilliputian you



And then I died

Thinking I know all at 87

I entered heaven, and for the final time I said,

Lilliputian me and lilliputian you
