Afraid  To  Live





You  missed  seeing  the  rainbow,
While  you  were  hiding  from  the  storm,
You  missed  the  beautiful  roses,
Afraid  of  touching  the  thorns.


You  missed  bright  sunny  days,
Hidden  away,  from  the  suns
Threatening  rays.


You  missed  the  babys'  first  steps,
To  afraid  to  see  it  fall.


No  amusement  parks  for  us
There's  danger  on  every  ride,
You  can't  go  out  today,
The  ozone  levels  too  high.


No  horse  play  for  the  children
To  much  risk  of  injury,
They're  never  allowed  any  candy
You  know,  it's  bad  for  their  teeth.


No  evening  strolls  along  the  beach,
The  air  out  there  makes  you  sneeze,
No  blankets  or  picnic  baskets  ever  for  us,
You  can't  tolerate  those  dreadful  bugs.  


No  road  trips  in  the  car
You  might  get  vertigo,
And  that  dreadful  humidity,
Gives  your  hair,  a  mind  all it's  own.

No  little  boy  of  yours,
Will  be  allowed  to  pick  up  a  bug  or  worm,
Oh!  goodness  no!
You  know,  they  carry  dreadful  germs.

I  really  don't  have  to  wonder  anymore,
Why  our  lives  don't  hold  any  pleasure,
It's  because  we've  never  really  lived,
We  merely, just  exist.
