the things you might experience living your life.

Chapter 1

When you are a baby, you are so small. it seems you don’t know... anything at all. but you learn so fast... everything is new. but it can’t last... That is true. Soon you will grow up. To be a child... But that will not be mild.

When you are a child.. you learn and you play. Through sunny and cloudy... you spend your days. Making friends and seeing what’s new. Life’s an adventure... That is so true.. Drift into imagination.. Dream your dreams... And even plan your schemes.. Then you will grow into a teen..

When you are a teen... Everything seems so strange... You might want to date... it’s hard to change... People seem interesting to love... But keep moving until you reach the stars above... Stay strong and true So many things are waiting for you... When you grow to be an adult... You may not see any fault...

When you are an adult... You might drive a car... Get a job, and go so very far.... So many things to do... You will be busy... It’s not going to be easy... You can still have fun... Even though it can be hard... Keeping up with your life... Finding a husband or a wife... You will see... Maybe you will even have a family...

When you have a family... You can see them grow... Helping them and getting to know... They will go through so many things... Being happy and sad... Its like growing wings... Love your family with all your heart.... It’s not a hard thing to start... See the stages they go through... Know they are different, yet the same as you... Yet this is not the end... Life will go on... Like an endless song.... Changes and struggles will come... Show people just where you are coming from.... You will try hard to belong.... Making friends can sometimes be hard... But stay strong and keep your word... Remember the happy times, and learn from the bad... Know you will feel both happy and sad.... It’s OK to feel everything you feel... You can enjoy life, and know that it’s real... The years had passed, hope you made the good memories last
