back in time

Lets go back to a time
The only thing that got you high
was your father’s shoulders
your worst fall
was a foot high
the only woman in your life
was your mother
and your worst enemy 
was coughing syrup
a time when
not doing your homework
was your worst sin
having a burden meant
next week’s physics exam
when a broken heart
was glued back
when hopes were
the new game on the market
when you were 
the person you never wanted to turn into ..

    Life was easier so it seemed a few years back for our youth have so much to content with these days...Somethings in life seem to be better but it would be nice if we could cushion life by taking away the negative..Sara
