Lost Childhood - Poem by Cynthia Sok

you grow up too fast
you forget the faded past
you leave behind in the dust
the childhood that brings you happiness
when you stopped to look back
what you realize
was what you lost
years that seem far
are now here
the years that seems so close
are now far
you grow up too quick to fast
slow the pace of your run
to enjoy what brought you to your present destination
