If Only...
Anna, Age 14, Ashburn, VA

Don't you wish you could be young again, free and full of life, glistening and bright? Don't you ever wish you could just dream, absorbed in your unrealistic thoughts floating above and beyond? Or donít you wish you could live life in a time machine, rewinding or fast forwarding the memories in your life? Don't you, don't you, don't you? Or am I the outcast, the one who sees different?

Youth. Young and bright. No worries. Being young again, waking up every day with light in your eyes, eager to start this new day that will never repeat. Metabolism is jumping around like a trampoline. School is what you look forward too, seeing your friends, new and old, boys and girls. You have no worries, just happiness. Skipping so innocent, not knowing about the cruel world that surrounds the outside of the recess walls. Youth is what I wish for, free and full of light, glistening and bright. If only we could go back being young again. If onlyÖ

I open them to drifting clouds, calm and peaceful floating above me with gracefulness. Dreaming of what I will never do, never speak, never think of again. But for just that moment, I can do whatever I want all in my head. No one is in my dreams to hurt me or bring me down. I can say whatever I want, do whatever I want without any criticism. I wish I could be absorbed in my unrealistic thoughts floating above and beyond. If only everyone could dream unrealistic thoughts all the time. If only...

If only life were like a time machine. Rewind. Fast-forward. Live your life the way you want it to be lived. Rewind the memories that fill your heart with warmth, fast forward the heartbreak. If life were in fact a time machine, then life would be paradise no worries to remember, no heartbreak, no horror, no nothing, just love. Love. Love makes the world go round. Why wouldn't someone want to experience love? Fast forward. If only while living your life you could fast-forward the stinging moments that make you experience mixed emotions. Just living your life and you come across a memory, a memory that stings you or makes you upset. Well, you donít have to see it any more, just fast-forward and keep on living your perfect life. If only...
