Turbulent Waters

All of my friends 
can count higher than me,
They can add,
and subtract,
and think faster than me.

And they can sit still,
when the teacher is talking,
while I'd sooner be out climbing a tree,
or just walking,

My parents have weeded,
and tiled my path,
They've paid for my tutors,
and helped me with math,

But I'm only happy 
when I'm down by the sea
When I can be the person
who I want to be.
