There is always a time where we must change,
Where we must grow with every passing seconds of the day,
But for some, like me, this time comes a lot earlier than we want,
Mine came when I was twelve.
I didn't wish to be so old at that age,
Having to erase my childlike ways,
But my mom needed me,
There was nothing I could do.
Tragedy is the biggest change we face,
We can either go to one place and let our demons beat us,
Or we can let the demons out the door of our lives
When we fight to stay above the mess of everything.
But I was young,
Let's leave it at that,
I've never been well at explaining the tragedy,
That made me grow up this way.
