    Fast Forward

    Boy, don’t you test me!
    Whoa, who the heck was that?
    That woman that just said that,
    Did those words just come from me?

    Oh mercy, it’s finally happened
    I done turned into my mama
    That’s what it’s got to be.
    I know those kinds of phrases didn’t used to come outta me.

    When did this happen?
    Woo! I must have slept some years.
    When did some music get too loud,
    When did the teenagers become kids
    And more importantly
    When did I automatically become ma’am?

    My memory must be slipping,
    It must have been that Alize.
    Something caused me to sleep too long while childhood slipped away.

    I could’a sworn I was just a kid,
    Now they tell me that I’m grown.
    Man, I got to be careful,
    Next week I might be in the home.

    That was funny yet poignant T. I know we all at one time have to take a time out to figure out where it all went... our youth that is.
