Don’t Grow Up

Be a kid for as long
as you can. Don’t grow up.
Be a kid; dream big dreams.
Some say, “don’t kid yourself”
Some are not kids themselves.
Tell me – you won’t grow up.
Be a kid. Be a squid. Be a lid.
Be anything you want to be
before life really begins.
Be an actor – a ballplayer.
Be an astronaut -a farmer.
Be a president – a politician.
Be what you want to be.
Be free, and don’t grow up
because having youth
beats being a grown-up.
Be anything you want to be:
a person your kid self
would be excited to meet.

Take the Stairs

The elevator
is full 
of people 
who
did
not
take
the
stairs. 
But who cares, I don't. Do you? 
                       I take
                    the 
              stairs 
          for 
     many 
         reasons.
                I like 
                      to run
                            up 
                  super fast 
          to beat            
                The e
                    l
                    e
                    v
                    a
                    t
                    o
                    r full of people who did 
                                         not 
                                     take
                                  the
                                      stairs.
                               I don't 
                     trust them 
                                at all. 
                                I 
                            take 
                      the stairs; 
                      I don't 
                      care 
                      who cares.
                      Take
                      the 
                      elevator. Either way, 
                      I'll be at the top
