Looking back – April 5

05 Apr

When I was little
It was all so innocent,
I looked at the world
And I smiled for no reason,
All was good
And I saw not the bad
Everything was simple,
And uncomplicated.

Playing in the park with fairies and magicians
Was a reality, it seemed,
And to get the best toy was a dream

I remember looking at older people 
With admiration,
They seemed so big
So strong,
I was going between them
And thinking
One day
My thoughts will fly just as high.

    You know there is Truth in youth. There is reality comes of age, wisdom. In our lives there is room for both. In most ways one is better with the other.

    Your piece I think, so simple yet profound in that it is a testament to that. Perhaps it says more than you intended. If so, Cheers to that!
