Same But Different

Remembering times of old
Only but a little boy
What a difference life makes
Upon my mind and soul
Changed so much, yet the same

Remembering I was taught
If I kissed a girl
They would give me cooties
I believed this to be true
Avoiding all the girls I’ve met
Only a boy that was scared of girls
Age and time; certainly changed my mind

If I swallowed watermelon seed
A watermelon will grow inside
Taking extra cautions
So a watermelon doesn’t grow
Such a trusting person I was

My mind, the way I think
Has changed dramatically
My thought process
Would like to believe more advanced
Before, life was fun and games
Still is to some extent
Adding responsibilities and duties
Amongst endless obligations
