    "I wish I could say this was a story about how

    I got on the bus a boy and got off a man more cynical, hardened, and mature and ****. But that’s not true. The truth is I got on the bus a boy. And I never got off the bus. I still haven’t” -The Boy (Childish Gambino)

    Me Either

    sometimes in an adult world you can become so overwelmed you revert to being a kid.the innocence of a child is the most pure thing on this planet.we were all there at one time,some of us just forget what it was like being a kid,not corrupted

    Growing Up Sucks!

    I have nothing against adults, but I notice that older you get, the more crap life dishes out to you. I have dealt with more than enough during my lifetime. However, life keeps giving me more and more to deal with. More and more, and every time I get some new responsibility, and...

    When I was 11 I told my mum I didn't want to

    turn into a teen. I am now 16 and I act quite immature but I still take care of my younger brother and sisters and do a bit of chores in the house. But these days my mum forgot what I told her and tells me to act more mature and grow up it frustrates me.

    business workers who don't have souls and will dress and act like one of them. Hopefully if I'm lucky, along the way I won't lose myself. I will work at a desk and never make friends, I will drink coffee in the morning and beer at night. I will never find time for myself and...

    Tired Of Hearing It

    I hear a lot of ppl tell me I need to grow up because I never take anything seriously. Honestly I don't know how. If being grown up means being serious all the damn time I'd rather be kid all my life.

    I want to grow up, as in be an adult,

    but I never want to lose my childlikeness. I'm so terrified that when I "grow up" I'll be conservative instead of a hippie. There's a song that says "Now that I'm older, my heart's colder" and I feel like so many times that happens when you "wake up" into this adult world. It's...

    Adults Are Hopelessly Egotist. I Hated Adults Since I Was A Child, Now That I Am Big , I Fall In The Same Category And It Frustrates Me. I Talk Simply, But 'Grown-Ups' Always Find A 'Purpose' Behind ALL Of Your Gestures.

    "Ah, there must be some selfish motive , why you went on to praise that guy" can't i simply appreciate? or laugh? or talk. Everyone is so sure what they want, I am not. Problem? yes, adults have a problem with everything. I want to die as soon as possible.

    I want to be forever young so that I will be carefree, innocent, decent looking and lack the great responsibilities that come with adulthood.  Growing up is scary plus you get wrinkles and all that.
