I was a little tomboy into everything,
Not ever wanting to wear pink,
Stepping outside clean going home black,
Where it came from my brain I wracked.
Always into mischief without meaning to,
A twinkle in my eye whilst I grew,
Time seemed to go slowly then,
Never thought I reach the age of ten.
Time flew by suddenly I was in my teens,
Found a sudden liking for eating greens,
Still wanting to be out with my friends,
Suddenly interested in seeing young men.
Before I knew it I was in my twenties,
Earning my keep and going to parties,
Remembering my childhood with a smile,
Wishing at times I was still a young child.
In my thirties I got married in haste,
No more of my life did I want to waste,
Hoping to have children and a good life,
Children didn’t come so I’m just a wife.
Now in my forties happy but with regrets,
Some people I wish I had never met,
Life could have been much worse though,
My quiet little life I will make the most.
