The bright pink walls were painted over with gray,
Animals, dollls, all thrown away.
I lock myself up in my one room castle,
Avoiding my family, my chores, my hassels.
I hear my mom say "we never see you anymore!",
But I make it clear I still do adore.
I've changed, I want to be independent, alone.
I want to be bolder, wiser, and grown.
But I change even more, the older I get.
I realizer I was wrong to grow up,
And wish I could stay a kid.
