What robs us of the innocence of youth
Is not age

It is the awakening of self
It is the realization of selfishness
It is knowing that you have
The capacity to hurt the ones you love
And that sometimes you want to

And this tragic and beautiful self awareness
Is why we can never be children again
And why some of us have never grown up
