When We Was Young - Poem by Lauren White

I remember when we was young, we played football at the park
You, your friends and I would play for hours until it got dark

I remember when we was young, we always played on the nintendo
Sometimes arguments would start, our favourite game was mario

I remember when we was young, we'd set booby traps like home alone
We'd put tiny cars on the floor and call it the danger zone

I remember when we was young, we went to grandma's for a week
One morning we fought and spilt my cereal, after that we didn't speak

I remember when we was young, I'd sit and watch you on the PS2
You pretended you didn't want me there but I knew sometimes I helped you

I remember when we was young, we went on holiday to Auntie Suzies
We played in the pool all morning then bathed in her cool Jaccuzi

I remember when we was young, we was ill during Christmas
We still got a lot of presents and Mum drew us those pictures

I remember when we was young, things were pretty dangerous
Although we did have fun, things were more than hard for us

I remember when we was young, we had a secret life that nobody knew
Dad would give us a fright and beat Mum black and blue

I remember when we was young, we would talk heart to heart
Things have changed dramatically, I didn't expect us to part

I remember when we was young, we had a special kind of bond
Now that we are older, that seems to have dissapeared and gone

    I remember when I was a child, I was able to hear the pleasant songs of birds at every early morning...
    I was wishing to Grow old sooner, to break the force bonds and be my lady....
    I'm closer to the wish, but I a gift....
    I can not hear the birds' song...
    I'ts not only me... It's about all the grown humans...
    but if a coin falls on the ground, everyone turns to where the that the coin's fallen...
    it seemed that we're old, in our youngest parts of our lives....
