Grow up little girl
Don't be a fool
Stop living in a wading pool

Look up little girl
Don't look away
Face the truth and be on your way

Give it up little girl
Hear what they say
Grown ups don't carry on this way

Let it go little girl
You missed the boat
You can't be the prom queen riding on the float

Time has won little girl
You can't run away
The lines on your face get deeper everyday

Its gone little girl
It wont come again
Your fifteen minutes are at its end

Grow up .....!

Well, I have yet to claim my fifteen minutes too Tori, don't feel bad. This poem makes me view all the cliches we grow up with and maybe even life itself as myth. Good job.

I figure it this way...I may have to grow older but I'll grow up kicking and screaming all the way.

Growing up does not have to be a bad experience. Yesterday, I requested a sign be placed at the entry gate where I live. Suggested it say;

Drive slowly, Adults in second childhood are out playing in the streets! And we are!!

Very nice poem.
