Age Ain't Nothin' But A Number

Love and Hope

A number that drives

my momma crazy.

Causing her to rant

and rave.

That boy is 10 years

older than you!

You ain't nothing but 18!

A baby.

A number that makes

 me shout back.

But I like him,

 I have a crush on him.

Plus you are years

 older than daddy.

A number that causes

my father to chime in,

"Yeah but your momma

 is only 6 or 7 years older."

And meanwhile I glare

angrily at a corner,

Because his little "2 cents"

isn't helping my case.

A number that makes

 my brother taunt,

"Do you honestly

 think he wants you?

A girl, a baby?

Don't you think

he wants a WOMAN?"

A number that makes

my face turn red with rage,

"According to my body


A full-bred one too,

One that is ready for anything."

A number that makes

 them all gasp out loud

then we turn our backs

on one another

and stomp away.

But then again

Age Ain't Nothin'

But A Number

.... Right?
