I can't remember,
Skipping rocks on the pond,
My childhoods forgotten,
My Childhoods lost,

Going to the lake,
Sitting on the beach,
Playing with friends,
or dancing in the streets,

I can't remember,
The crash in the fog,
My childhood was forgotten,
My childhood was lost,

The doctor doing surgery,
Me getting pills,
I can't remember any of it,
None of it's clear,

I still can't remember,
How it is gone,
My childhood forgotten,
My childhood's lost!

Well I'm gonna end it right now,
I gonna kill myself off,
A childhood Forgotten,
A childhood lost

    This is true, once your childhood is lost you feel you have lost yourself, you feel that no one can possibly understand so you float in the world all alone. You think no one cares or even knows how you feel but it's not true, in the end someone does care and someone does find out, sadly I hope it is true. (Report) Reply

    ...beautiful and full of the intensity of childhood that we seem to let go of..as it turns to such tragic loss and the pain that is left with suicide, , its a well written reminder of what is left. (Report) Reply

    a sad delicate poem
    dealing with a difficult issue
    but so well done
    I feel the pain
    a fine poem (Report) Reply
