As we're getting older,
Happiness is in the past.
Everyone is changing;
Nothing good seems to last.

What's become of our sweet childhood?
Are memories the only thing left?
Innocent people start to talk of
Suicide, drugs, and theft.

Now the swings are broken;
Boys are breaking hearts.
Death becomes reality,
And best friends begin to part.

No one seems too trusting;
The world is full of crime and lies.
Everywhere you turn,
You meet accusing eyes.

Life's no longer fun and games,
No more endless play.
You realize life is short;
You must cherish yesterday

Dans chaque fil il y a un debut.

This is my favorite of the poems you have posted.

The rhythm is good and the meaning is even better and unfortunately too true.

Thanks so much for your comment.

Keep writing. :)

Whoa... I really liked this poem! It conveys a message about what life is really like today simply... and the flow is great with the rhyming. It's a very honest depiction, and I really enjoyed it. (loved the third stanza!) :)

Also, thanks for checking out my poems :D
