    " When I was a child"

    When I was a child
    I said
    If grow up
    I must
    Be alive

    It's a pity that many poets just want to knock the confidence of others and greatly disrespect them. Surely supporting your fellow poets is far better. Together we can achieve greatness if we stand united. Sounds like an impossible dream, but it is possible if we can show respect.
