We were in the playground,
Just a couple of sixteen-year olds.
They told us we were grown-ups,
We believed it, too.
But I guess, it was too grave,
This assumption for me was too unbelievable.
I was an actual grown-up
But I didn’t want to be anymore.
So this weird idea arose in my head
And before I could do something,
My friend leaped up high and then
Splashed into a puddle of water
And my clothes turned filthy wet
For she had probably lost her mind,
I was willing to believe I, too, had.
So we all lost our marbles
And like little kids we decided
To jump high up in the sky
And land on our feet in murky puddles.
I guess, puddle jumping was something
I had never tried.
