I Am A Child.I am a child.Unsure, yet unafraid.Innocent, and carefree.Surrounded by those who love me,I have the luxury of taking things for granted.I can afford to waste things like time,I get what I need, and everything I want.I am me, myself entirely, and I don't care what people say to it,Because I am not aware.I am ignorant, but I am proud.I live in a world of princesses and knights,Pirates and ogres.I am me.I am perfect.I am a child.

We CriedI held your hand that night,Your best friend and I,We go there first.They told us it was too late,There was nothing anyone could do.I cried,You told me not too.Your friend cried too.It has been the three of us for as long as I can remember. We could get through anything,Except maybe this.I leaned in close to your face.I softly placed my lips on yours."Save me a spot in Paradise." I whispered into your ear. Then it was time to go.Your friend,He switched off the machine.Then he reached over and squeezed my hand.Then you were gone.You were gone,And we cried.We held each other.And we mourned.We cried.
Innocent.I remember what innocent felt likeThe wind blowing in my hairThe sun shining on my faceEverything was magical and nothing was impossible.School was still a place of fun and safety"Free play" time was a daily givenSaturday morning cartoons lasted all dayAnd a hug from Mom made everything "all better."Barbie was just a toy"Gay" meant you were merryA nightlight kept scary things at bayAnd little brothers were your most annoying best friends.Your imagination's only limit was bedtimeTwo pipecleaners, construction paper, and some glue was a major craft projectA cardboard box was a space rocket, a house, and a carPlay-doh was Mom's worst nightmare.Crayons and stickers made everything prettierSequins and rhinestones were priceless treasureSanta Claus, the Tooth Fairy, and the Easter Bunny were realAnd Superman really could fly.Yes, I remember what innocent felt like.
