Before I could truly understand,
Before I knew what was going on,
I would show my emotions in every way possible,
Only because I was ingorant to the things that were going on.
When I was little,
I bawled when I was sad,
I laughed when I was happy,
I threw fits when I was mad,
All of these things I did when I was little.
I grew up,
I could understand better,
I could find out what was going on,
But I chose not to see what was happening around me.
When I grew up,
I shed tears when I was sad,
I smiled when I was happy,
I clenched my fists when I was mad,
All these things I did when I grew up.
I became older,
I opened my eyes a little and didn't like what I saw,
So I closed them again,
I closed my eyes to the things that were going around me.
I became older,
My eyes glistened with unshed tears when I was sad,
My mouth turned up ever so slightly when I was happy,
I frowned when I was mad,
All these things I did when I became older.
I became wiser,
I thought about what I saw and I knew that I had to look again so I did,
I grew sober when I looked around,
I knew, right when I got a good look, that this was reality and that there was no closing my eyes to it.
Then I became wiser,
My eyes were dry when I was sad,
My mouth didn't twitch was happy,
My body never tensed when I was mad,
All these things happened when I saw shat had become of the things around me.
When I looked around,
I knew that there was no turning back,
I knew that if I closed my eyes, everything would change,
And I would forget everything that I had seen,
But I did not want to forget the things that I saw.
