I was once a tiny baby, copying my elders’ moves
Then I became a toddler, who started going to preschool
After a few years, I was in my uniform, running late for school
After five long years, I was in middle school carrying heavy books
Four years later I was in my civil dress, running to catch my college bus.
Then I had written exams
When I passed, I went to a doctor university
After studying for many years, I become a doctor and behold
My dream had come true and my career had just begun
At the age of 24, I got married to a man named James
I spent 76 years with him and my kids
Now all I can think of while playing with my grandchildren is
“Oh I was once a baby in tiny overalls sitting in my mother’s lap”
I was happy then, I am happy now.
Growing up is not a bad idea after all!
