Growing - Poem by Lacy Greear Kobilis

We start out not knowing
then we begin to learn
we start out not loving
then quickly feel the burn
we start out happy
and end up sad
we start out scared
then end up mad
it's funny how
the more we learn
the sadder we become
it's funny how we walk to love
then turn around and run
If we didn't have
the knowledge today
that we didn't have
yesterday......
there would be so many
smiling faces;
and we wouldn't walk around afraid
always searching for hiding places.............
