Where It Began – Written July 1997 (Aged 22)

Where It Began

interesting characters
from a strange point of view
and from the point of the pen
i remember seventeen,
that is where it all began
i was lilywhite and scared
but i soon got my tan
from a girl, too quick with the hurt
but that is how we all began
and it hasn’t been the same since
