My Childish Reasoning

Regina Puckett


When I was a child, I wanted it all

I wanted to fly but never fall

I wanted to run fast but never leave

I wanted passages but never to grieve

I wanted love without suffocation

I wanted trials without tribulation

I wanted everything without the cost

I wanted to seek without getting lost

Then day I grew up and I saw

My childish reasoning had a flaw

You have to give before you can take

And you can’t heal the pain without the ache
