Never grow up


Growing up.

Such a thought scares me.

To think, in just a few short years I'll be invited--or maybe shoved--into the scary world of adults. I'll have to decide who I am, who I want to be, what I want to do with my life, and so much more. I'll have to make hard decisions, and learn from the consequences.

I remember the days when I wanted to grow up. To be responsible, and wear my big girl shoes. Now, I wish I could go back. To before, when things weren't complicated and all I had to worry about was making sure the bubbles I blew in my chocolate milk didn't overflow from the cup.



Never Grow Up <3

Why do I have to grow up?

Why can't I stay little forever?

Why are things so complicated?

Why, why, why?

Why can't I keep my innocence?

Why can't I stay young and flexible?

Why do I have to worry?

Why, why, why?

Why are there so many questions?

Why must I worry about fitting in?

Why are there so many questions?

...why?

"Take pictures in your mind of your childhood room
Memorize what it sounded like when your dad gets home
Remember the footsteps, remember the words said

And all your little brother's favorite songs
I just realized everything I have is someday gonna be gone"
-Taylor Swift, Never Grow Up


What are your thoughts on growing up?


thanks for reading. <3

  1. i totally agree with you, Rose. ALL THE WAY. life is just so... frustrating. i stress about everything, and nothing is like it used to be, when i was younger. i didn't have to care about anything, i just played with my toys all day. and now, i have to think about people, decisions, and my future.

  2. ::Rosie, I love you.::

    Just felt like I should say it. But you already know I do. But I don't care. <3

    oh Rosie, I know how you feel. It's sad but then you get happy because of the memories {the good ones, at least}.

  3. My thoughts about growing up? I know it's hard and stressful, etc, etc...but I think it's an adventure...and a privilege too in a way, if you know what I mean. :) Lovely post, as usual. :D
