Let me be silly!


Sometimes I just want to be silly
Giggle and laugh at anything
Life is too short
And too complicated
To be serious all the time
We need to lighten up
And take one day at a time

We get so serious when we get older
It’s much more fun to be a child
Why do we forget how to play
To be a princess or a pilot in the sky?

The responsibilities of life
Weigh us down
But I’’m not going to be
Weighed down

I’’m going to take the time
To laugh and play
To smile at the things that
Life brings my way

So, I guess that makes me
Seem immature or undignified
But I don’’t think that’’s what dignity’s about

I don’’t mind going against the norm
And if I end up breaking some rules
At least I’’be been true to myself
At least I won’t have any regrets
