## I remember when....

I remember when I looked forward to growing up
I remember when I liked school
I remember when my only fake friends were invisible
I remember when I had friends
I remember when I was happy
I remember when no-one judged on clothes, or hair, or anything
I remember when I was innocent
I remember when I had no reason to cry
I remember when there weren't cliques
I remember when the worst insult was sticking out your tongue
I remember when people wanted to be friends
I remember when I was a kid
I remember when I didn't need counseling
I remember when I felt alive
I remember when I wasn't afraid
I remember when crap was the worst word in my vocabulary
I remember when I wanted to be a teenager
I remember when I didn't cry myself to sleep
I remember when I had none of these scars
I remember when drama was someone stealing someone else's crayon
I remember when "keep me away from sharp objects" was a joke
I remember when my worst fear was the dark
I remember when I didn't need to be so stronger than the voices
I remember when there were no voices
I remember when the worst injury was skinning a knee
I remember when I had a reason to go to school
I remember when the hardest thing was not getting a toy I wanted
I remember when there were no whores, sluts, posers, or fakes
I remember when the world didn't seem so cold
I remember when you could take back what you said as a mistake
I remember when "broken-hearted" was just a word
I remeber when I started drawing myself as a mustang running away
I remember when the only reason to run away was because I was mad at my mom
I remember when I wasn't depressed
