Self-centred living as a child
is normal until you turn wild.
In teenage years you try to find
yourself and sever stronger bind.
You want to rebel and to face
the world until you find your place.
Thus growing older you confess
you might have made your life a mess.
But insight in your faults to blame
you learn from them, put them to shame.
A sense of humour makes you rise
and become modest, smart and wise.
