Blog / A Look Into The Past
Friday, 20 November 2009 at 16:21
Close your eyes,
And put yourself in the past.
Remember being a little kid,
Thinking the good times would always last.
Back when the world seemed so innocent,
And life was simple as could be.
Without a care in the world,
We really seemed to be free.
When getting high was climbing the tallest tree,
And looking down at the world below.
When time seemd to stand still,
Each day going by so slow.
When boys and girls had cooties,
Different from the ones we now know.
And a kiss seemed so nasty,
If we'd only known where it would go.
Before it mattered what clothes you wore,
Or the color of your skin.
When did we decide to judge eachother,
Why did it begin.
Before we started carrying guns,
Or protecting ourselves with knives.
Before we started killing eachother,
We had no such sin in our lives.
When you'd get in a fight with your best friend,
And make up five minutes later.
Before we knew the pain of a broken heart,
Who'd have known there was pain even greater.
When we couldn't wait to get older,
Oh how great we thought it'd be.
All we dreamed of was the future,
We had the world laid at our feet.
Now we look back upon those days,
Of happiness,laughter,and dreams.
Those memories lay in our hearts,
Wow being older really isn't what it seemed.
We spent so much time looking at the future,
And now we're just looking back.
But we're older now just like we wanted,
Our dream came true at last.
