Going Back In Time - Poem by Christian Rautenstrauch

Running around doing who knows what… stuff
Sometimes I feel like I just want to quit and yell enough!
The hustle and bustle, the calls and the texts
Just trying to live up to what everybody else expects
What happened to just being a kid, that was fun
There was nothing due and nowhere to be, I could just run
I watched TV for the joy, not cause I was lazy
I just want that feeling again, does that make me so crazy?
I think at this time in my life I'm supposed to develop a plan
Pick a good major, get a job, and make as much money as I can
I'm pretty good at math maybe i'll choose accounting with dollars and cents
Thats what my dad did, and it definitely pays the rents
But at the same time, the last thing I wanna do is be him
Sitting in an office, work stacked up to the brim
When I was young I had a dream, just like MLK
I wanted to be a firemen, a baseball player, the president some day
Thank goodness I didn't know the instant, when life changed from a game to a job
Cause at that exact moment I would have let out a terrible sob
But like my mom always said I have no reason to complain
I have a great family, great friends, and most of the time I'm sane
And theres small moments in time, where nothing is wrong
When I'm out on the field playing baseball, or driving around listening to just the right song
And its during these special moments, where all worries are hid
Where I go back and time, and live life like a kid.
