Poets & Poetry

We all grew up

You try hard to catch your shadow
But it leaves too fast.
The little you wouldn’t understand
Why a black monster was following you around.
From crying with broken toys
To smiling with broken hearts,
We all grew up.

Nostalgic memories are a powerful state of mind;
Beautiful memories that put smiles on our faces,
Memories that let us stay pure at heart.
From leaving someone for our happiness
To leaving someone for their happiness,
We all grew up.

The harsh reality of our future
Did not taint our innocence then.
Building sandcastles, we grew up with them.
Somewhere between broken pencil
And erased dreams,
We all grew up.
