we learn to walk and talk at this age

when our eyes have just opened

truly seeing the world for the first time

from babies in diapers

we've grown to unstoppable little rascals

with the energy of a fully charged motor

lithium running through our veins

we have become little divas

as if on cue we cry when we don't get what we want

and tantrums are a prerequisite to destruction

we've learned to be greedy

with affection and possession

stuffed animals are an extension of our bodies

and toys shape our personality

we have a bright future ahead of us

each door leading to a different path

but for now, we busy ourselves

with semi-solid food and playthings
