The Boy That never “Grew”

Today I’ll share a story with you

about a boy that never grew

for everybody loved him

except for one…who never had any fun.

The boy that never grew

went through his life giving him the shoo

because nobody liked him

the boy said,” I am way too cool for him.”

As life went on

the boy that never grew

had no more than a shoe,

for he used his shoe

to collect coins from crowds passing through,

and for the boy known as him

lived a life quite opposite of grim

for he was a millionaire

and had no thoughts of despair.

Then on one bright, sunny day

he found himself amongst

the crowds passing through

one after another

ignoring the man with the shoe.

As he approached

he recognized that poor little man,

gave him some coins

and shook his hand,

as he said, ” Thank you for making me who I am.”
