For the first time

For the first time we’ve realised
That life is tough and we devised
How to get on top to be prized
Try our best not to be chastised
We need each other that’s the truth
Live to the full, enjoy our youth

Talk things through, devise a cool plan
Save, recycle, do what we can
Drink some cheap wine and eat some bran
Have to think of our future clan
Growing up and being mature
Like to live with you my amour

Tough but we try to make it work
Got our own routine like clockwork
We’re so glad for our own network
And everything is like a perk
For the first time we got it right
We can say we will be alright*

* The LaCharta, created by Laura Lamarca, consists of a minimum of 3 stanzas with no maximum length stipulation. Each stanza contains 6 lines. The syllable count is 8 per line in iambic tetrameter and the rhyme scheme is aaaabb ccccdd eeeeff and so on. “La” is Laura Lamarca’s signature and “Charta” in Latin, simply means “poem”.
