when i grow up
(from some forgotten source)
when i grow up, i wonder if people will be more afraid to cry than they are to die. will i be able to see a rainbow in a small-filled sky. will there be any trees left, if not how will the planet survive. will there be a website at http://www.lifeairsupply.com. when i grow up, if i got bored and had nothing to do and me and my son built a canoe and water that was once blue would be so polluted it would give us the flu. will a thousand dollars be enough for a shoe. will i have to be like you, letting money make the decision for everything that i do. when i grow up, will the existence of dolphins and whales just be a story i tell, starting with once upon a time and ending with where did we fail? will adults be the hammer and nail. will schools be next door to jails. will the truth be illegal for sale. when i grow up, will people be on the news for anything besides killing. will those drug dealers still be outside my building. will they ever learn how to love or are they still afraid of the feeling. will tv and music videos still raise america’s children. will students go home from school in a bullet proof bus. what if children had no one to trust, that would hurt me so much and i just want to be happy, when i grow up.
