and the only things you worried about
were saturday morning cartoons
and whether or not to get sprinkles
on your ice cream sundae?
when changing friends
was like changing socks?
you did it almost everday,
and it probably mattered less.
when d.a.r.e. came to you school
and you learned about drugs for the first time?
when, after all that time and work,
you finally won first place
and your parents bought you ice cream
when your dad said good job
and your mom said i love you?
but i've got a lifetime of memories to forget.
