This used to be the place I ran to

The past used to be amazing and the present has been just about okay. And who knows as to what the future holds? So I will keep running back to this place. A place I once called home and that's where my first friendships were formed and 20 years later they are still around me. In a city that truly defines the term uncertainty... this place will always be my safest home and I want to return home very soon.

"Don't look back
Keep your head held high
Don't ask them why
Because life is short
And before you know
You're feeling old
And your heart is breaking
Don't hold on to the past
Well that's too much to ask"

This used to be my play ground
