Reminiscing the simplicity and innocence of childhood

Time check: 12:14 am

Just 14 years ago I kept wondering about the life of being an adult. The independence I can finally have and the things I can finally do on my own. But now that I am, most nights I just wonder how everything could change so greatly. Sometimes I wish I was a kid once again. I guess most teenagers could somehow relate to that. Hearing the song “Never Grow Up” by Taylor Swift, everything that I never would have thought could vanish right now just comes back in my memory. Remembering my childhood years I don’t get to worry of things except that I could just play and play. The thing that could usually make me cry was just bruised knees and sometimes my angry Grandmother or uncle.haha. The thing that I probably hate the most is when I am forced to sleep after lunch when all I wanted to do was play. At night my Grandmother would tuck me in and I love it most when it’s raining. Hearing thunder and seeing lightning strikes makes me afraid but yet I felt safe and still the world was a beautiful and calm place to be lived. *sigh* I never thought things could disappear just because you’ve grown. I never thought maturity could cause loneliness realizing that innocence was way better. That beautiful mind that didn’t know much of the world. The simple awe in simple things that adds a big joy to the heart. That real smiles and laughs that you make in simple ridiculous things in your sight. These things I miss the most. I never knew its beauty until teenage nights came. :)

“ So here I am in my new apartment
In a big city, they just dropped me off
It’s so much colder than I thought it would be
So I tuck myself in and turn my nightlight on”

“Oh darling don’t you ever grow up, don’t you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh darling don’t you ever grow up, don’t you ever grow up
It could stay this simple
I won’t let nobody hurt you
Won’t let no one break your heart
And even though you want to
Please try to never grow up
Don’t you ever grow up
Just never grow up”
