Growing Up...--not my work (read intro!!)

Growing Up...--not my work (read intro!!)

by: Joy_

ok, so i found this poem a long time ago and i didnt write it, but i really thought it was here it is and tell me what you think:
couldnt fit it all in the intro, so i'll break it down in pieces and see what you think...

  1. 1

    As we get older, lollipops turn into cigarettes. Detention becomes suspension. Soda becomes vodka. Bikes become cars.

  2. 2

    Remember when getting high meant swinging on the playground? When protection meant wearing a helmet? When the worst things you could get from boys were cooties?

  3. 3

    Dad's shoulders were the highest place on earth and mom was your hero? Your worst enemies were your siblings.

  4. 4

    War was only a card game. The only drug you knew was cough medicine. Coke was just a drink you had with a sandwich.

  5. 5

    The only things that hurt you were skinned knees. Race issues were about who ran the fastest. And goodbyes only meant until tomorrow?

  6. 6

    And we couldn't wait to grow up. Agree??
