From coloring to writing notes 

    From sleepovers to study groups 

From best friends to strangers 

    From playing outside to longing for indoors

From playing handgames to forgetting how it goes

    From having friends to having enemies 

From craving candy to walking past it 

               I’m so lost

    Reality soon kicks in, where am I? 

Adulthood looks me in the eyes as if we’ve been friends for so long 

    And says, “you’ve stepped inside a new realm, you must prepare”

 Taken aback I look into Childhoods eyes, soon it evaporates 

    I soon find out I’m no child anymore
