Earned

by Hope2932   Jul 26, 2017


Sometimes I think it would be nice
To be young again
To dance in the rain
Be picky with my dinner
Not do dishes
Or mow the lawn

Then I think
Puberty
Pimples
Broken hearts
Heartache

Nah

Give me my wrinkles
My stretch marks
I have earned them
I have given birth
Gained and lost weight
Loved and sorrowed

Lived

Would not give that up
For the fountain of youth

A lot has happened in the years
In between

Would not give that up
Nope

But......

What about an edit button?

    OMG...yes, maybe? Hehe...an edit button is indeed a great temptation if ever there is one. Loved and enjoyed the whole write. It just shows we do grow from what we have earned both good and bad.
