Forever 5

I do not wish to “Grow Up”

F that.

95% of the time, I WILL be just like a 5 year old

Why?

I am fearless

Adventurous

I believe I can achieve anything I set my mind to

I am very perceptive

I observe and listen way more than I talk

And, I talk a whole lot 😂

I love bright colors and piggy back rides

I love people – kids and seniors

Not adults

I pity adults

Why?

85% are boring conformists

Who are hypocritical cowards.

I should follow the rules because you dared not break them?

Wow!

Quite an intellectual rationale.

Bravo!  😑😄

And you expect me to listen to any other BS that you say??

Adults are very funny.

I feel nothing but sadness for all the adults

Who once had bright ideas

Laughed too loudly

And wore yellow dresses on a Monday morning

I pity those who feel they have to conform to survive

Smh. F surviving

I will instead thrive

Why?

Because I am a untamed child who relies on no one’s validation

I talk too loudly

I sing off key

I dance like a foreigner

To my own rhythm and beat

I wear 3 bright colours any day of the week

And I shaved my head at 21

Why?

Because I wanted to

I could

So why not?

Hey, I call BS on all these rules

I say wear your skirts a little too short

Dye your hair pink

Scream if you feel the need to

And cry on the bus if you wish

YOLO I’ve heard

It’s probably true…
