"There, there."

As a child
We think the best of
The silliest things.

A slice of cake
Is the best thing
In the whole world.

As we get older,
We become more

A slice of cake
Isn't enough.
Nothing is ever enough.

We want more...
More of everything.
And we become greedy.

How fantastically joyous
Life would be...
If we never grew up.

The author's comments:
Growing up is a scary thought. It means more freedom, but it also means loosing that childhood innocence.
