Maybe be a Kid Sometimes
Sometimes you need to feel your roots
In order to grow a stem.
You may have to go back to your childhood
So you can know again.
You sometimes have to tie bows in your hair
To find yourself appealing.
You often have to be careless
To avoid the anguish you're feeling.
You sometimes have to be ignorant
To surpass the anxiety and pain.
You may need to keep your training wheels
In order to stay sane.
You may need to stay young
To stand growing old.
Sometimes you have to cry
So you can be bold.
