lollipops turn into cigarettes.
the innocent ones turn into sluts.
homework goes in the trash.
detention become suspension.
mobile phones are used in class.
soda becomes vodka.
bikes become cars.
kisses turn into sex.
remember when getting high
meant swinging at the playground?
when protection meant wearing a helmet?
when the worst thing you
could get from boys were cooties?
when dad's shoulders were
the highest place on earth,
and your mom was your hero?
race issues were who ran the fastest.
the only drug you knew of was
the most pain you felt was when
you scraped your knees.
goodbyes were only until tomorrow.
we couldn't even wait to grow up..
