When I was this age it was silence, not fair

I don’t see why the kids get so upset
The hormones are odd causing them to fret
I wish they could see how lovely they are
And appreciate being themselves so far

I would be jealous but I haven’t the time
Trying to stay young to me isn’t a crime

I wouldn’t go back, what good would it do
