12th Birthday Poems

While Childhood Lasts

Teenage years are on their way
There's no need to grow up too fast
Please make your innocence stay
Have fun while your childhood lasts

Take a Bow

You don't have to be grown up
But you can do great things now
Drink responsibility from your cup
Eat birthday cake and take a bow

Don't Worry

Don't worry too much about doing it wrong
You won't be twelve years old for very long
