rearanging years


9 years old

out in the mud

watching Bugs Bunny

torcher Elmer Fudd

I start high school

It's my frshman year

and singing becomes my thing

and everyday I hear comments like

every little thing I did

because so many things seem to change

"Mom are you only up to my shoulders?!?!

how did things get so rearranged?!?!?!?"
