I Don’t Want To Grow Up

I Dont Want To Grow Up short poem

Photo by jenny downing

I don’t want to grow up
When I see friends drifting apart,
when I see my mom and dad getting old,
Everything is changing,
going out of hand.
I don’t want to grow up.

Miss the carefree life I had,
Now that I have got what once I wished I had,
I realise that this is never what I wanted,
Just wanna re-live those days,
When friends were closer and life was gay
I dont want to grow up

Marriage is on cards,the elders say,
makes me think what happens next,
I am not ready to have a family of my own,
If only someone could understand that,
I don’t want to grow up.

Take this job and then find another,
They judge you by the money you earn,
Nobody told this when you were young,
I don’t want to grow up.

Though I know this happens to all,
There are somethings in life that cannot be stopped,
Even though time still does not go backwards,
I dont want to grow up at all

Whereby: The scent of your breath love dances like a butterfly. Drenched in your raining desire lush spring awaits. Yearnings whispered vigorously. The sun kissed golden season’s ancient story filled with certainty and uncertainty. Every word I utter reflects you.
