Goodbye Childhood

Your inner child, it is gone
It has been gone since the day
You realized you can’t play with dolls
Or hide and seek or any of that
And it’s not because of society
Or because you’re too busy

You simply don’t want to

You can sit back and remember
The days back when you seemed happier
When you were able to enjoy Sailor Moon
And Teletubbies and dress up games
When you never made friends out of politeness
And you couldn’t care less about politics

But now it is gone

You never realized it was leaving you
Until you reread your favorite childhood book
And it just wasn’t the same, now
You actually like getting socks on Christmas
And you haven’t felt careless in ages
And your shoes with wheels in their heels
Don’t fit you anymore
Not that it would matter

Goodbye childhood
