Now and Then


Now I have to watch what I eat
Then I ate what I wanted
Now I have to drive
Then I had to ride
Now I have to pay bills
Then I had to spend my parents money
Now I have to take care of my kids
Then I had to be a kid
Now I have to be responsible
Then I had to be carefree
Now I have to work all day
Then I had to play all day
Now I have to hide my wrinkles
Then I had to hide my pimples
Now I have to cover up
Then I had to show more skin

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
