Growin’ Up

Suddenly, all around me

My friends and family

Have changed

Right before my very eyes,

Heart,

And mind

They’re talking about

Things I never would’ve given a second of my time to

Just a few months ago

I never thought they would fall

Into that trap.

Can we change the subject, please?

I seem to be the only five year old

Out of all the teens.

Oh God…

Why is everything suddenly

So hard?
