I Wonder What Happened

Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.”

~I Wonder What Happened?~

When I became an adult what happened?
Did I move away from joy and fun?
Did I linger on moments of past events?
Did I long to be young again?

What did I do?

When I learned that I was no longer a child what happened?
Did I go off the deep end and screw the first thing in a skirt?
 Did I love no more?
Did I hunt down my old self and scold him for what I a now?

What did I do?

Beautifully made, wonderfully made, targeted at birth for death.
When you become an adult does that pass away?
When you become an adult do old dreams die?
When you become an adult what matters? 

What did I do?

When I became an adult what happened?
When I learned that I was no longer a child what happened?
I guess the simple answer may shock some of our viewers.
It may make them run for cover, and wonder why I would do such a thing.

I did not lose my joy and fun.
I did not linger on the events of my past.
I did not wish to be young again.I did not screw the first skirt that I saw.
I did not lose love.
I did not hunt down my old self and scold him for what I am now.

What did I do?

I grew up.
