You pledge your life 

to only find 

forever doesn't last 

when love is one-sided. 

Oh how I wish 

I could have learned the lessons 

sooner so I wouldn't have 

repeated someone else's past. 


Oh how I enjoy it 

middle age 

where you discover 

you've never been as smart 

as you thought you were. 

Kids are gone, 

life has begun. 

It's finally your turn 

to experience firsthand. 

No more cries from 

the peanut gallery. 

No more fights from 

the abyss. 

Just a life waiting 

to be lived. 

Oh how I have learned 

growing up was never as much fun 

as when you hit the age 

where all you want to do is go
