    So I was looking for some song lyrics

    and somehow ended up on the nostalgic side of youtube listening to songs I last listened to 10 years ago. I had flashbacks of the 7 year old me and I can't believe how much things have changed. I felt this rush of emotions and I don't know how to explain how I feel right now, it...

    I walked past my dad's fire pit

    and saw my burnt up childhood folder I had won in elementary along with some other childhood stuff I don't remember. Anyway, he destroyed it. My dad destroyed it all without telling me and asking for my permission. The only thing that lingers in my memories is that folder and...

    When I was small :- • I'd put my arms in

    I miss the little girl i used to be .

    Where there was nothing to worry about , i was always happy , i didnt have to make life changing decisions or live in a generation where society judges you for every little thing you do . Growing up was a trap .

    When I was a child my family was poor.

    My mother tried her best but she couldn't afford many things for us. We played with what we had and we had a lot of fun. I remember being happier back then. Now I'm 18 and we are much better financially plus I have my own job. The funny thing is I think I was happier back then...

    Such as when I could do anything without

    getting judged. They say I am narrow minded, believing that I am in my own little world while I am not. I know more than they know Indo yet they just say I do Not know. That I am not a child anymore and that I should act mature. But then again how do you expect me to know about...

    Those Were the Days

    There's so much I miss from my childhood. I miss being naive and ignorant of the world. Not knowing about how cruel the world can be.  I miss when hanging out with friends, no one saw color or wealth. I miss the days of being innocent and innocence was all I knew. And most...

    Even though it wasn't great,

    I Grew Up In The 70s In Pa.

    I remember oh to well the joys of growing up in the 70s, me and my sister, and brother. It was 6 of us, but the 2 little ones my mom kept close,  and it was a 7 year different with my older brother, so he didn't hangout with us. Me and my sister was a year apart, and my brother...

    I feel like I grew up too fast,

    the fact I knew too much things a kid shouldn't know. Yea, it helps now knowing those kinds of stuff since I'm in my teenage years. I feel like knowing those stuff, cut my childhood short or made it go by faster.

    I remember growing up was a somewhat

    bittersweet experience. I've always been a big brat and I'm ashamed of it, but it's just who I am. When people never tell you NO as a child it no longer exists as a word in the dictionary later on in life. My mom would always get me EVERYTHING I wanted and spent most of her...

    My childhood was just

    so beautiful. When I think about it, I end up having tears in my eyes because I sometimes want to go back and relive those moments. Those moments of innonence and care free attitude. My god, do I miss those days. I miss my childhood. I'm scared to death of being a grownup.
