Memories

Childhood comes and then goes
But once you’re old enough
There’s no going back
But then you remember all the memories
Seeing how you once were
So innocent and pure
With dreams so big and vast
Remembering the songs and smiles
The family gatherings
Knowing that everything will be fine
Not in tune with reality
You think everything is magical with rainbows and unicorns
And you will be forever young

But then it fades away
So quickly you can’t even imagine
Because reality starts to kick in
Confused by what’s happening
You’re going left and right and up and down
Wondering if you’ll ever be okay
Seeing the beauty of the world
Quickly fading away by greed and power
Your mind controlled by the now and the future
Forgetting who you are and who you once were
It’s quite twisted you see
But in the end, it will all make sense
Because you have the power to turn it around
That is if you’re commited and if you want it
