Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game


When you are born it's dark

Then comes the light 

You eventually learn to walk

and stay up late at night 

 

Growing up has stages 

You start as a child

You start to go through phases 

Sometimes life is just mild 

 

When you are a teen

You get in trouble 

Some people think you're mean

fitting in listening to the treble 

 

Then comes being an adult 

Trying to find a way 

You need to not blame the fault 

And find your own way to pay 

 

Some things aren't so rough

you learn to evolve and grow 

even when times get tough

but its all a part of growing up
