If only the clock can turn back,
And the months and years evaporate to nothing,
If only time can be reversed,
The thirteen in 2013 changing to zeroes,
If only I can go back,
To when I was little,
To simpler times,
When the world seemed nicer, easier,
When everything was all freaking rainbows and butterflies,
When there weren't "friends" who lie,
When I didn't know of heartbreak and boyfriends,
When "playing with someone" didn't mean anything sexual,
When saying stupid was the worst thing you can say to someone,
When the worst pain was a skinned knee,
When I thought the world was only full of good things,
Before Mommy and Daddy started fighting,
Before all the shit hit the fan,
Before I grew up.
Hold on to your childhood, your innocence.
Because once lost, it isn't something that can be returned.
Be a kid for just a little longer, okay?
Savor it while it lasts.
I used to be so ignorant.
So blissfully unaware.
Now, things changed.
Experience walked in the door.
And I can't go back to who I was.
No matter how much I long for it,
It will always be out of my hands,
An unreachable dream.
I know this.
So why can't I stop wishing?
That is so pathetic.
My mind is lost in the past.
But I have to pull my head out of the clouds,
And face reality.
It's not going away just because I wish for it.
I'm not little anymore.
Thank you for taking the time to read. You didn't have to, but you did. So have a nice day now.
