Remember?

Remember?
Not too long ago,
When everyone was afraid?
Of the bees buzzing around
Their stingers in our faces.
Us running round and round,
In childish bug avoiding races.

Remember?
Not too long ago,
When everyone was afraid?
Of the harsh kids on the playground.
“We’ll never play with you.”
Me running round and round,
In childish emotion avoiding races.

Remember?
Not too long ago,
When everyone was afraid?
Of gaining a single pound.
To be the picture of perfection.
Me running round and round,
In childish emotion avoiding races.

Remember?
Not to long ago,
When everyone was afraid?
Of another stay hospital bound.
They found me face down.
I can’t run anymore,
And these pills can never help me face it.

Remember?
Not to long ago,
When no one was afraid?
