“ child “

when i was an infant
i wanted to be a child
when i was a child
i wanted to be in teens
when i was in teens
i wanted to be in youth
when i was young
i wanted to be a man
when i was a man
i wanted to have a wife
when i had a wife
i wanted to have a kid
when i had a kid
i wanted one more
when i had two kids
i wanted to own a car
when i owned a car
i wanted to buy a house

when he got a good job
i wanted my kid to marry
when my kid got married

i wanted to be a grandpa
