Turn Back Time

Lollipops turn into cigarettes.
Soda becomes vodka.
Kisses turn into sex.

Remember when getting high meant swinging on the playground?
When protection meant wearing a helmet?
When the worst things you could get from boys were cooties?

Dad’s shoulders were the highest place on earth and mum was your hero?
War was only a card game, and your worst enemies were your siblings.
Race issues were about who ran the fastest.

The only drug you knew was cough medicine.
The most pain you felt was when you skinned your knees,
and goodbyes only meant until tomorrow?

And we couldn’t wait to grow up.

Thanks for your comment!
And although your lbog title is "secret world of a fashion muse" . . .to me it;s not fashion, it is actually quite in-depth and intersting!

Fé... said...

Oh gosh, Moi dear. I'm all blushing here because of your flatters :) Thanks so much sweetheart...

Haha. Interesting comment you've got there, SimoneV dear. Well, in my defence: fashion is a reflection of one's soul. So it's very much deep for me :)

Hahaha. No Marcy dear. Fortunately they're not mine ;p I'm still in my early twenties and so not ready to have my own kids!
