    Growing up

    When you were born
    Your mama said "she looks just like you"
    When you took your first steps
    Your daddy said "come here you"
    When you said your first words
    Your grandma said "shes growing up
    and it's the hardest thing she'll have to do"
    When you were ten
    You learned how to ride a bike
    Two wheels not four
    And when you were fifteen your teen years began and you were scared
    Oh yes you were scared
    And when sixteen came around your dad left and you didn't know what to do
    It's 'cause you're growing up
    And it's the hardest thing you'll have to do
    Twenty-One came around and your grandma died
    You didn't know who to turn to so you sat down and cried
    You called your mama and you asked for her help
    She came right over and you held on tight
    You didn't want to let go, of the last thing you had
    So you asked her for her wise advice
    Your mama said "your growing up
    and it's the hardest thing you'll have to do"
    You said "im growing up but it's something i have to do. it'll be the hardest i have to do. it's something i'm gonna do"

    Amazing way of looking at life. It seems as we grow older life becomes harder, more obstacles to overcome, but this seems inspirational to people so willing to give up.
