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.

What happened?

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.
