***! ! The Kid Inside Me*#
Behold, a marvelous sight!
A handsome Boy from morning to night,
Self-reliant, self dependant and oh so brave.
No one's king and no one's knave.
Free as his father, strong like a mother,
A friend whose love exceeds any brother.
A boyfriend to girls of many faces,
Sharing intimate secrets in quiet places.
A valient steed, a silent step, a bird in flight,
Charging; marching, piercing through with light.
He is smart, they say.
Some look once; and think, no way!
He is small and quick.
Too many choices to even pick,
That which holds his quality;
Care, kindness, equality.
In sharing joy and making jokes,
with numerous mates and friendly folks.
To say that; this is, or has ever been me,
Would be outcasting my Karin and V.
So for now it shall continue to be;
The Kid, the King I strive to be.
