GR<3WN UPs

If growing up means I have to give up on my dreams because their just beyond my reach

A child I shall stay for in my heart I know I will always find another way

If growing up means I have to give up on those I love because it hurts less

A child I shall stay because everyone deserves to have that friend who will always stay

If growing up means when life gets hard I will run away

A child I shall stay for I know tomorrow is another day

If growing up means my feelings must remained boxed and sealed away

A child I shall stay for I am a drink to be poured not a bottle to be corked and forgotten

If growing up means I must blend into the crowd

A child I shall stay for I was meant to live out loud

If growing up means my promises become just words

A child I shall stay for a pinky promise made is most precious & true

If growing up means my worries become my life

A child I shall stay for I will always make time to play

If growing up means I must learn to lie to myself each day

A child I shall stay for I refuse to shield myself away from pain

There is already enough “grown ups” in this world today

But god knows we need more GR♥WN UPS who know how to laugh and play

If growing up means I have to abandon who I am and what I believe in

A child I shall stay to dance and play among the stars
