I find myself takin trips in my mind wishing I could rewind to a time back then, back when I could just be a kid again, before our imaginations were on Instagram, back when I was loved for simply who I am. I remember when I wasn't so full of fear, when summer broke off at the end of the school year, back when I only needed a joint of some regs and a few beers, when my sisters friends were my peers, back when I was anywhere but here. Before the tattoos and the mask, back when my best friend was my dad, when I had an army men collection, when I'd only see the funny faces lookin in the mirror at my own reflection, before the judgments and complextions, back when I had a million paths to choose from in any direction. A time back then, when Christmas morning was full of excitement, when WWF was hype, when I never wondered if I was going to overcome and be alright. Before my life with my wife, before I needed medication just to sleep at night, back when success was the only thing in sight. Back then, when we were children playing video games, before the anxiety, depression, and pain, before I identified as an alcoholic after I say "hi my name".... Back then, when love was free, when I didn't get criticism for just being me, when I felt safe in my mom's arms, back when I never had to worry about you being gone.....
