Grounded /After

A young boy of free spirits lives in my heart
That hangs from trees
And bounces off walls
A young boy that loves to play
On the playground everyday after school
Instead of doing homework

But all young boys grow up
And no longer have time to hang from trees
Nor do they bounce off walls
But watch as others do.
They are no longer able to swing
from the rusty monkey bars
because their feet touch the ground
and keep them grounded
and held back from the real fun.
