If Only I Had Known

on

I remember the day when ma picked me up and put me down and never picked me up again…

I was big…big enough to be on my own
From a girl I was a woman full grown
Into my life, struggles were flown
Had stayed young…if only I had known

I remember the day when life went astray and then sorted and went astray again…

Life was a wreck and in it I was thrown
Reality dawned…scuffles had blown
Seeds of disaster were long sown
People’s true colors were finally shown

I remember the day when I was young and then grew up and then grew out…

Had stayed young…if only I had known

    sage comes with age
    burn to drive
    the bad
    remember
    with some rose glasses
    as more time passes~
