If life could stay as it was when we were young.
When boys had cooties and girls were just icky.
When all we needed was candy and a t.v. to make us happy.
When the worst things we did was yelling at our little brother and the worst punishment we ever got was an early bedtime.
It was a time when the toughest descions we had were picking teams for tag and when money was only useful for toys.
It was a wonderful time when hugs solved anything and family ment everything.
When we were young death was not understood and pain could not truely be described.
Look at us and see what we have become. See how we are in a world of lost hope.
Where life just means pain and suffering and happiness is only a blurry dream.
Where high school is a prison full of messed up people and crazy teachers.
We now live in a wrold where money means more drugs and people hate themselves because they don't look like the girl on the cover of the magizine.
Where people feel the only way to escape their pain is to hurt themselves.
In this world we are pressured to be people we're not.
How could I have become this girl who can't even look in the mirror because she knows she'll just cry?
How could people I've known since kindergarden be smoking pot or cutting their wrists?
When we were young we could laugh and joke around saying we'd never do those things, but when things like alcohol and suicide are starring at us in the face we just give in.
When we were young most of us were safe.

We had high hopes and dreams and hearts of gold.

I wish I could go back to those years of my childhood where I didn't have to be afraid of life
