Turn Back the Clock

If I could turn back the clock
To my childhood days
I’d live my life free 
With different memories made
I would not be in fear
I’d be honest and free
I would grow up with confidence
And be the real me


Through childhood my comfort
I found it in food
I just kept on eating
My weight it did balloon
I could control situations
In coping this way
Avoid situations 
That might give me away


Because who would fall for a fat guy like me
If I made myself ugly 
Then they’d leave me be
Either gender walked past me
Neither made a hit
Because they only went after
The guys that was fit


If I could meet with that child 
I would give him a shake
Show him all that I’ve learnt
And what a difference it makes
But that child has been lost
He lives in the past
So I’m looking to the future 
To release ME at last
