As we grow up

1 July 2008 4 comments

As we grow up,
we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down...
probably will.
You will have your heart broken
probably more than once
and it's harder every time.
You'll break hearts too,
so remember how it felt when yours was broken.
You'll fight with your best friend.
You'll blame a new love for things an old one did.
You'll cry because time is passing too fast
and you'll eventually lose someone you love.
So take too many pictures,
laugh too much,
and love like you have never been hurt
because every sixty seconds you spend upset
is a minute of happiness you'll never get back.

    That is very true indeed. Several of those are a bit 'near to the bone'! I wanted to add the 'Dance like nobody's watching' line too :) (Did quite a lot of that this weekend at Glastonbury!)

    My problem is, I don't feel like I've grown up yet.....

    Hi Poetess Kim of Laketrees,

    Whoever wrote this poem, he or she captured the essence of existence!

    After publishing my Holiday posts, I will be on a vacation safari for the Fourth of July.

    Have a Great Weeekend,
