we have been called humans but that is no excuse for the things that we and the actions we make. We are our own minds and souls and what you do makes up you. The choices you make give you a title not the excuses you take.


Childhood is when I believed that if I stared at something long enough my eyes would get
stuck that way
The feeling of uncertainty but complete and freedom and fun
Childhood was the never ending kisses from grandma and saying that I could help her make
cookies and the sweet smell of success and being able to halve milk with them
Childhood id best friends that never grew old of playing and letting their imagination be free
of any trapped door
Childhood was never being made fun of or if someone laughed you, you didn’t care and
would laugh back
Childhood is if you got in trouble and crying fits would come then leave after you got a hug
Childhood was time outs and spankings and then a stern talking to when you were done
Sixteen hood is using common sense and thinking before you speak and do
Sixteen hood id letting you drive and being responsible for another life and your own
Sixteen hood id being halfway done with high school and facing the facts that come with
growing up
Sixteen hood is a ray of laughter that you get from the rising sun with classmates
Sixteen hood is remembering what childhood is and was but knowing what growing up in
sixteen hood means
