Gone are the days where I could play free in the fields of grass,

Carefree and seeing the beauty of the natural world,

As a little child,

So naïve.

Gone are the days where I was raised,

Taken care of,

And every whim taken care of.

Giggling the day away.

Gone are the days where I would ride my go-kart,

Not worrying whether I got dirty or not,

Free to explore,

And see the vast skies, so blue.

Gone are the days where I was protection,

Hidden from corruption,

Believing everyone was good,

Thinking that no harm would ever come to me.

Gone are the days where I could dream,

Not dragged down from the vast amount of school,

I so passionately hate.

Where there were no closed gates.

Gone are the days where the sun shone so bright,

My fate chosen by I,

Where I didn't fear the night,

Where I didn't succumb to my fear.
