I told myself
From times of play and fun
That I had to grow up
And I never really did
I clasped memories close to me
Watching them dying, as I crushed them tighter

Years of tasks
Countless Xs
Crossing words
And ways
A blank page
Now soaked with ink
Those schoolroom choices
I always wanted 100%
But I broke at the border
And was told it didn't matter
I found my foot
Miles from where I found my aorta
Every piece for every person
And none for you or me
And I now see
Why none of us can ever grow up
