Childhood

i woke up today,
felt my childhood gone.
another year older,
more of my past is gone.
(but still, i yearn to hold on)
my eyes are no longer innocent
no, i have seen too much.
the sounds i heard,
it's just all been too much.
i woke up today,
felt my childhood gone.
another year older,
more of my past is gone.
i feel as if i should've
tried to relive what i could
but that chance is no longer there.
i should've spent more time
swinging in the backyard
rather than doing my makeup
i wished i spent more time
playing at the park
but instead i spent it on dates.
my childhood is gone,
i have wished it away.
i should've spent more time
in pigtails
rather than straightening
my hair every day.
on the beach i should've
been digging sandcastles
instead of looking at boys.
it is my fault i'm as old as i am.
although i may be sixteen,
that's not nearly how i feel.
my childhood is gone,
i have wished it away.
while i'm the only one to blame
now i only want to play.
