Here I go again, not thinking just procrastinating,
same old soul no ones knows how aggravating,
a lasting image of my heart breaking in my chest,
and me a child, wanting it so bad now I'm the pest.
Funny how we can all change our minds in one day,
so used to the mundane that it almost seems okay.
Wandering through life with nothing new to explore,
wishing you were once that little girl next door.
Throwing out hoop dreams and wishing on stars,
growing up too fast, I want to take back what's ours.
How time flies with everytime the alarm awakens me,
and now that I am captured I just really need to be free.
I see us age, I see us change so much it's strange,
who'd of thought this would be the way we were arranged?
I try not to laugh because I'm trying so hard not to cry,
as I watch each leaf blow and watch my friends pass by.
The twinkle of our eyes when we give another new life,
those twinkles turn to tears when we live out a new strife.
From the cradle to the grave and making the hospital our home,
this is why we are born without memory and why we leave alone.
Our beliefs change so much as we change every year,
until the day we have to move and face my ultimate fear.
I guess it's just our course of life to travel down so fast,
so here I'll make my memories until the become the past.

Not bad
Just once I'd like someone to write about being only a young soul. Where do all the old souls come from some of them had to start somewhere.

I think this piece would go smoother if you drop the rhymes. Maybe try ending each line with a word that has to be spoken up.
