This poem is something that I wrote today.

Every person starts out as a newborn

So gentle and filled with simple happiness

Then we learn to crawl

We get into things that we can reach 

Try to learn the ropes

As we do this,people see a physical

Growth as well


Once we are toddlers 

Things get interesting

We can walk and talk now

We are still new to things 

Still growing

Still learning 

And still living

Innocence is still in our eyes


Years go by and everytime we fall

We get right back up again

Simply trying to learn and grow

From our mistakes and heartbreaks 

To our loving memories

There is a smile somewhere in us 

We all must grow
