Growing Up

Paths we take
Choices we make
Paths we take alone
Choices we make on our own

We all grow up and learn
We all take different turns
Turns in our path of life
Turns that may lead to strife

Problems we go through
Problems exists in other lives too
Having problems are not wrong
Having problems do not stay forever long

Conflicts causes growth in many ways
Lessons we learn will always stay
Conflicts we gain as years go on
Lessons we learn, makes us more strong
