Looking Back

Look back at the past
Before the times we've been through
See everybody laughing
No gossip, everything's true

Back in time
there were no lies
no people to avoid
no one sad, no one cries

when we were young
everything seemed right
There were no wrongs
Nor reason to hide

But everyone finds their hold
It can hurt through to the core
Everyone finds their little box
with no little door

you see everyone young
And think back to the past
What ever has changed
It has come so fast

Why do we feel empty?
Why do we feel silent?
Why aren't the people who care?
And why must we cry it?

Very nice, and again, really good idea. REALLY good, but I think if you mixed up the meter a little, and took out just a hint of the rhyming, it would be even more amazing. <3!!
