So Yesterday

Yesterday I was a child.
Naive and happy.
Problem: the lack of the perfect color in the crayon box.
Santa was real and magic put me in awe.
When I was hurt it was because I fell on the playground playing tag.
So I put on a band-aid.
The world was big, beautiful and full of possibilities..
But let's be real.. That's soooo yesterday.

Today I am a teenager.
Stubborn and over dramatic.
Problem: whether or not the boy across the hall actually likes me.
I wish on 11:11 and the word love makes me speechless.
When I get hurt, it's because I believed some lie some new guy told me.
So I write about it.
The world is busy, twisted and separate.
But, honestly, I sooo wish it was yesterday.

This poem is great in how it explains the diffrences of life as we grow up and how we change over time. Always wishing for something that has already come and gone.
