I Will Never Completely Grow Up

I am a star gazing girl,
Wishing on shooting stars,
Dreaming about Justin Bieber,
And listening to Ke$ha while hanging up my clothes!

I am a tiger-loving person
Petting everything soft and fuzzy,
Searching up “tigers” online,
And nagging my dad for a pet tiger!

I am not a keep it to myself girl
Hiding away in my clothes,
Wishing no one will talk to me,
Keeping all my thoughts to myself!

I am a silly, happy person,
And not an up-tight girl.
Teddy bears have never died and learning continues.
The times might catch up to me, but I will never completely grow up!
