When I grow up

What do I want to be like, when I grow up

I will try to be strong, and not give up

Be proud of myself, hold my head up
‚Äč
I want to be brave, and not throw up

Not lose my temper, never blow up

Do what I am told, always turn up

Help other people, cheer them up

But now I'm old, and still not grown up
Dean Thorpe
To Dean Thorpe one of the worst things that could ever happen to him would be becoming a sensible and responsible grown up, luckily those are things has no intention of ever becoming, as you can see from this photo!!!

About This Poem

I am in my early forties now and I still don't feel like a "grown up", I am not sure if I ever will! I am just over 7 years away from being 50 years old and that scares the crap out of me! There are so many things I wanted to do in life, so many places I wanted to go, but due to my health problems I don't know if I will ever do it now.
