Nostalgia

Only sixteen years to my name
and I already have feelings of longing 
for the years that have passed by all too quickly.

It used to be a race to grow up.
I can still hear the schoolyard ringing 
with taunts of "I'm older than you are."

But now it's a struggle with the hands of the clock,
trying to freeze them in their relentless path.

Give me a rest.

The seconds tick by.

The years roll on.

Only yesterday I thought I'd never grow up.
