Growing Up

Poem By Josh Austin

Growing up is a hard thing to do, but Im doin it
Growing up and being a good person is hard to do, but
Im doin it
Growing up and admitting that I made a mistake is hard
to do, but Im doin it

Growing up and telling the truth is hard to do, but Im
doin it
Growing up in a socitey that is so judgemental and
fake is hard to do, but Im doin it

Grwoing up in a world that shure as hell aint perfect
is hard to do, but Im doin it
Growing up and tell somebody that I was wrong is hard
to do, but Im doin it

Growing up is something we all have to do, some of us
do it quicker then others
Growing up really aint the funniest part of life but
you gotta do it

I've grown up a bunch sence I was 16 I've admited that
I was wromg when I was
I've admited that I was wrong when I really wasn't,
but I knew that you'd say I was wrong

You can't stand the fact that I've gotten out of the
childish state of mind
You can't stand the fact that you said what you said
and that somebody you said it about hurd it

You can't stand the fact that you'll be sitting at
home woundering why did he go places and Im sitting
here with nothing to do and nowhere to go
I've grown up alot faster then you and you don't like
it

I've had to pretty much grow up on the streets and
learn what I know out there
When you grow up I wanna be there to see it, cause if
I hear it I won't believe it

Evereybody wants to know When are you gonna grow up
and get over yourself? When are you gonna relize that
the world don't revolve around you? and When are you
gonne get the picture your not everybodys mom?
When are you gonna grow up?
Cause everybody else has!

Comments about Growing Up

Growing up is how we learn about life. I know the feeling of wondering if 'some people' are ever going to grow up. I like how you repeated the line, 'Growing up........, but I am doing it.' It gave the poem great flow. Keep writing. :) Shannon
