GrOWN

by Davayonn Tyler

You know what they say “the good die young “…
Didn’t want to live long anyway
Seem like first kisses next to school houses
Turned to marriage, spouses, sex and dinner dates

Call of duty
We used play games
And roleplay
Now we play roles
And hope for payroll
We burn bridges just
Pay dues and
…To pay toll
When duty calls (1-800)
It takes tolls
On us and when times hard
We break rolls

Of quarters in order
To feed our daughters

And sons
Blame it on the damn sun

Blame it on the days passed
Oh how time sway fast

Duck Duck  to playing
Mother goose paying bills
To keep loose bills shut.
Loose bills shut in savings to keep new bills up.
Cut bad friends off
sorry my crews cut
Crewcut,
 interview
new shaving
(Its funny how we grew up)
We gossip, spilling tea
To make a fresh brewed cup

“But Honey we just add lemons life threw us

And often when we argue
Our inner-kid take part too

We need immaturity
To humble us
We need that purity
In that adult world that
Crumbles us

I’ll rather drown-in the foun-tain of youth

Than  to fall down at the peak of reality

Of the mountain of truth

Some of us had seeds(kids)
Some gotten buried(Died)
Some got green
Some got married

go-round the ring finger
gold bound stone bleaming

And to those I give a green thumbs up

Know what ?
I really regret saying
I can’t wait till I grow up
