I'm posting twice today - once now, to make up for Friday, and again later, when I've completed my second offering. Writing with loud, rambunctious boys around is tricky business... this one needs work, but it's a start.
Yesterday, you were just a boy,
Exploring the world around you.
Yesterday, you danced with joy,
Accepting each moment as brand new.
Today, you are a teenager,
Feeling your way to manhood.
Today, you're young and eager
Leaving behind your childhood.
Tomorrow, you'll be a man
Adjusting to life as an adult.
Tomorrow, you'll understand,
That this isn't the final result.
For now, you're free to discover
Taking your time to grow.
For now, satisfy your hunger,
Learning all you need to know.
