What growing up means

Picking your clothes off the floor so that mom doesn’t have to.

Standing in a queue for an hour without whining.

Walking no where in particular; because you know how to find the way back.

Calling dad up for advice and not cash.

Missing the first-day show and realising it no longer matters.

Bringing a gift when you meet an old friend.

Having old friends to meet.

Smiling at life’s vagaries because you know

The glass is already broken.
