    Innocent

    I wish I could be that young and innocent again. I grew up way too quickly, and now theres no going back. I love how children don't know all the hate there is in the world, well most anyway. It was such a carefree time. *sigh* I wish I had made the most of my childhood instead of...

    No Worries...

    I would love to be a kid again! I had no bills, no problems, no responsibilities and no worries. I had only to worry about my grades and chores. Oh how I long for the old days!

    Funny Isn't It...

    When I was still a kid, I wished I could be grown up fast. When I got older, I wish I could be a kid again. I thought growing up would be cool and you get to do everything on your own. No people to control you or to tell you what you should and shouldn't do. Well hell, how wrong...
