Can't Wait

I remember very well,
My first day in kindergarten,
The joy that surged through me,
I just can't tell.
Graduation from babyhood,
Just enough for a good mood!

Then I got into my first fight.
At home,I told mum, "I can't wait,
to enter primary school!
These peeps are so not cool!"
Just like a predator on a bait.
But eventually, I got there,
A decision made by fate.

Primary school was a nice phase;
But then I noticed a change in me sister's gait.
The boys always got into her cage.
" I just can't wait,
to hit puberty, Kate."

Now I look into the mirror,
I've got the curves and all;
But high school's not a joke.
The pressure is just a horror.
I still can't wait;
To leave these mates!

Time has been faithful.
Now in university,
I know I've got to be careful.
My life can't be a pity.
My determination needs to be gritty.

I just can't wait;
For that graduation,
I know mum will appreciate.

Now at twenty-five,
I've got the car, the job and the house.
Though my life has been worth the strive,
I'm still not a wife.
Now I can't wait,
to get married;
And forget these dates!

Today's me wedding day,
"I do" i will say.
Standing next to me is my groom,
Soon we'll share a room.
Then i whisper to him;
"I can't wait to start a family."
He chuckles and whispers back;
"Me neither, Emily."

A family of seven,
This one's made in heaven.
Soon we'll be eleven,
With four grandchildren on the way;
probably, this May.

Just some years back,
I couldn't wait to do
a whole lot of things.
Now nothing is new.
I'm grateful my life doesn't suck.

I'm all grown now,
Drawing nearer to my grave.
I just thank God I'm saved.
It's hard to say goodbye;
So I guess I CAN WAIT TO DIE!!!
