Take Me Back to Where I Belong.

When simple things brought me the most joy

When the hardest choice was the easiest to make

When colorful things were my sorrows cure

When the reasons for my actions were the most pure

The age of innocence.. where has it gone?

Take me back to where I belong

When happiness was in early morning cartoons

When staying up past 10 gave me the most thrill

When running around on the streets was great fun

When jumping high off the swings gave me freedom

The age of innocence.. where has it gone?

Take me back to where I belong

When I would look forward to recess at school

When ice cream and sprinkles made me smile

When shapes of the clouds were my main concern

When excitement was actually in wanting to learn

The age of innocence.. where has it gone?

Take me back to where I belong

When my dreams and desires were stronger than life

When creativity would flow out of my soul

When I’d speak my mind without thinking twice

When my heart wasn’t close to the coldness of ice

The age of innocence.. where has it gone?

Take me back to where I belong

Frenemies.

You know your friends that are with you & surely commit

The ones who have always had your back with every hit

They know your whole life from beginning to end

Yet they be the ones to leave before you reach the end

Just when you think you can trust them with your whole life

Like what a husband does with his beloved wife

They take your precious secrets and all that you’ve shared

Cus you thought they would be the ones to listen and care

But instead everything twisted, all the stories got out

The ones they had sworn would never leave their mouths

And now they’re sitting together, laughing & joking

And you’re in your bedroom corner, dying & choking

And you finally realize you believed the wrong people

They were never your friends; they’re all fake and evil

But now it’s no use, they know everything about you

They’ll expose your every move & always try to outdo..

Everything you try to accomplish in life, forgetting the past

What these enemies did to your first and to your last

But then everything is either a blessing in disguise

Or just another one of life’s lessons for the wise

For me it’s a lesson that’ll guide me through every season

Cus everything that happens in life happens for a reason

So these friends that you have, they’re only temporary

The ones forever will be there at your cemetery

Now listen warily to what I say, place close attention

This genuine advice is for your own prevention

To lastingly reduce the risk of getting deceived

Keep your mouth closed, ears open – knowledge retrieved

And remember that no one’s on your side forever

Feelings change, attitudes differ, so you should never..

Give all your trust to someone that you think you know

Because those people will surprise you once things start to grow
