"....I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad, The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had...."
-Tears of Fears-Mad World


Why can’t I go back
And change the past,
Jump from where I’m at
To a better time,

Why can’t my troubles be so innocent
As they were back then,
When I thought my heart would break forever,
But always seemed to mend,

Why can’t kisses seal away pain,
Wave goodbye to one bad day,
To come in to another
Just filled with fun, arts and crafts,

Why can’t we skip along
Laughing and giggling,
Singing at the top of our lungs
Our favorite song,

Why can’t we just for more
Treats and sweets to appear,
Instead of rumors and bruises to disincarnate
Hiding in all the cliques and hate,

Why can’t we all get together,
Having little crushes on the other gender,
When boys still pulled your hair,
And gave you disgusting dares,

When did our suckers
Turn to cigarettes?
Our grape-juice to wine?

And when did our bonfires,
As well as going to the park
Turn to places to get high?

Since when did all this happen?
Since we all started Junior High…..

How teens are effected and how we never knew when we were younger what we were getting into.

Thanks very much, I know its a big issue for a lot of teens and it should be known about cause no one ever really talks about it.

Thanks very much, I know when I wrote it I felt like everything had shifted and just realized the difference that I think a lot of people ignore or just dont notice
