This old wood school desk

OMG the smells of the woods and the old musky smells of the building, 
                  the texture and smells of a good book. 
The beauty in it all, wishing I could be a child again, but this time free, free from the
                             bondage's that once held me down. 
        The innocence ripped from the child sitting in this chair, 
                                 the only comfort she could find was in the woods. 
Mother Earth was her best friend, the one she ran to for protection and nurturing.

    I love this poem. I have memories as a very young girl and pupil having to do Dictation, learn Math and Foreign Languages. I remember having art class too. I was young then 9 and under and I got picked on but looking back on my childhood I feel as though I could have used a child psychologist or someone older an adult to talk to and open up about my feelings with. The image of the old wood school desk brings the memories back for me.
