Don't Change

Remember the elementary days,
painless and free
when we were immature
but still happy,
equal but still ignorant
until we left the haven
where the only caring ones
were left to survive.
But they kicked us out
saying we needed to grow up,
recognize the real world,
drown in despair
while no one cares.
They told us to be mature,
succeed in our lives
so they look good.
Nothings wrong with it though
'cause the system was designed
by perfect humans who cared...

but only for themselves.

The author's comments:
I was riding the bus home from school when I saw an old friend from elementary school. He had changed a lot, but not in a good way. He used to smile all the time but not any more. After elementary school, it feels as if adults want us to grow up immediately, so they dump us in Junior High with out warning.
