Ten by Peter Coia



I cried at night and woke up Mum

That was when I was just one


I sat up and knew who was who

And guess what I was only two


I always fell and hurt my knee

A painful time when I was three


I could reach up and open a door

I was tall when I was four


At school I had to struggle and strive

But play was fun when I was five


I made a house with building bricks

I was clever when I was six


I ate all the food that I was given

I was really hungry when I was seven


My parents let me stay out late

But close to home when I was eight


I wore the best styles all the time

I had to because I was nine


 Wish I could do it all again

Now I’m old, now I’m ten!
