Growing Up...

Growing up...
Your best friend becomes your worst enemy.
Lollipops turn into cigarettes.
The innocent ones turn into sluts
Homework goes in the trash
Detention becomes suspension
Soda becomes vodka
Undies turn into g strings and boxers
Kisses turn into sex
Remember when getting high meant swigging on the playground?
When protection meant wearing a helmet?
The worst things to get from boys were cooties
Your worst enemies were your siblings
Race issues were about who ran the fastest
War was a card game
And the only drug we knew about was cough medicine
The most painful things were skinned knees
And goodbyes only meant untill tomorrow
But to think we all couldn't wait to grow up.
