    When did growing pains
    become dying pains

    when did that
    youthful exuberance end
    and the pretence begin

    when did amazement
    at the small things cease
    and the need become greed

    when did the driving force
    become drudgery

    when did exhilaration
    become dread and awe

    when did that bag of hopes
    become a stinking bundle
    of despised disappointments

    when did the expectation
    of a beautiful morning
    become a fear of not waking up

    when did sweet dreams end
    and one long nightmare begin

    when did enjoyment cease
    and become a future false hope
    quickly fading......
