" Once you fall, get right back up"


Life is so peaceful,
when you are young,
when kisses heal boo-boos,
and lullabies are sung,
it seemed that life could run on for years,
as long as the nightlight was there
to silence our fears.
Why does growing
have to be so hard?
At what time did the world become
bigger than our own back yard?
There is no more recess,
to stop the tension of the school day,
there are no more falling stars
that can snatch our worries away,
Decisions are tough
now that we are grown
why can’t we go back
to when life was our own?
