Kid Inside - Poem by Aram Stefanian

That's not the way you like it
The harsh reality bummed you out
A bright future was all you wanted
Your life's nothing to write home about

The kid inside you hates to get older
And wanna retrieve the former purity
Hard to survive if you're cold sober
When true love is also a rarity

You wish you could stop the time
And enjoy a neverending moment
Your love never stopped on a dime
Was free from pain and torment

Your soul is screaming for mayday
Unless you're stone deaf, you'll heed
If there's something you squirreled away
In the afterlife you will hardly need
