On My Own

On My Own


There’s a time in your life 

when the skies aren’t so blue, 

and the sun doesn’t shine so bright 


There’s a time in your life 

When there’s no more mommy and daddy; 

no more brother or sister 

Just you 



Is the correct word 

No idea of what to do, 

or where to go 


So many suggestions 

You should do this

You should do that 

But no one really knows 


Time to be a big girl 

Time to fight the big big world 

Because your all on your own 


This poem is about: 
My family
Our world
