Conquer conversations as if one owns the world
Hunger for more gluten free rice cereal in his bowl
Sleep is no longer an option when he has
Breathe heavy and a passion for fitness
You abandon your plan with your family
To be with a friend who puts you down
Applaud those who have just tried
Hide a smile as he lies for the 50th time about
Liking a girl in the second grade
You gaze at the stars as if they are hundred dollar bills
. . . . .
