growing up.

Growing up ...

When your bestfriend becomes your worst enemy, when lollipops turn into cigarettes, when the innocent ones turn into sluts, when homework goes in the trash, when detention becomes suspension, when soda becomes vodka, when undies turn into g-strings and boxers and when 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 a boy/girl were cooties? When your worst enemies were your siblings? When race issues were who ran the fastest, when war was only a card game, whenthe only drug you knew was cough medicine, when wearing a skirt didn't make you a slut, when the only things that hurt were skinned knees, when goodbyes only meant until tomorrow, and to think we couldn't wait to grow up?
