I never meant to grow up,
Truly, I was mistaken.
Far from me, Adulthood gleamed like a diamond in the sun,
Unbeknownst to me was nothing more than hopeless dust.
Once I fell in, into the pit of maturity,
The dust obscured the path behind me, back towards my sanctity-
Back to the world I had once been content in,
The memories faded even now as I claw at my responsibilities.
I’ve fallen too far, into Adulthood’s cruel clutches;
There’s no escape from the muck, there’s no getting back,
Back when life was good, in the Age of Childhood.
