For a Moment

I'm fifteen for a moment


life full of drama,


you would think you were on an elevator


with little kids pushing just about every number.


Fourteen i was humble


Got my first J.O.B!


Getting paid weekly,


so when the weekend hit


it'll be me and the booskie.


Big one three finally a teen


wishing I could still be daddy's little girl


three more year


sweet sixteen


got my own car


and working part-time


Back on the elevator


level 1 here i come.


seven now


Bench pressing these


little second grade girls


that got something to say,


with my partner in crime Ashley D Williams.


We were like Spongebob and Patrick


only difference was we were bullies.


I'm eight now


spoiled as ever


till I lost a big part in my life


January 18, 2004 Shelly Cobb,


My aunt died at Baylor hospital.


Those seven months and 26 days was hard.


I'm nine today


feels like i'm sixteen


party bigger then the universe


for daddy's little girl.


Leave that button alone


ding level five.


I'm 18 now


Getting ready to graduate Mesquite High school,


Skeeters out hahaha


I got accepted to Texas, Texas Tech, and Baylor.


I would pick Texas for the people


Tech for the colors


And Baylor cause they got a good basketball team duhh.


I'm 21 oh yes


partying with my friends at UT.


Almost every weekend heading home to my daddy,


cause you know baby girls home sick.


I'm 23 now


just got drafted into the WNBA,


playing for the stars.


Oh no not again level 10.


I'm 32 like magic,


with twins on the way.


I've been traded to Los Angles, hey candice girl.


Got the blessed best husband of all,


"Who Dat" yeah he play for the saints.


I'm 36 today,


bout to spit out my fourth child.


WNBA life was great


got three championship rings and retired now.


I'm 43 for a year


Back to where I grew up.


My king got traded to Dallas,


so back to mesquite I go.


I got my husband, Parents, 5 kids (3boys 2girls), and my old friend.


Child quit, ding you're at level 13.


I'm 51


an Algebra 1 teacher at Mesquite High School,


what can I say SKEETERS for life.


My twin's are about to graduate, keeping the tradition alive.


and I got a grand baby around the corner.


This is where my mid life crises hits


because its coming from my 17 year old.


I'm 56 now


Mom and dads anniversry,


Everybody's meeting up at there house


like a regular sunday dinner.


I'm 64


barring my father today


I guess you can say its just a crises,


after barring my mother three months earlier.


I've retired as a teacher,


now just watching my grand children grow up


I must be getting older and older


cause I feel myself getting closer and closer with God!


I'm 85 for a moment


Still going to church every Sunday,


and having Sunday dinners.


Who would have known at the age 88


I would be barring my great grand-child.


I'm 95 now still hanging strong me and the hubby!
