I'm a child again

I’m a child again

I’m a child again and it’s such fun
To kick a ball, and laugh, and run
And walk down to the local park
And being bad, oh, what a lark

I love to watch those colored birds
This always kind of gets me stirred
Their lovely hues, my eyes they daze
These lovely birds do me amaze.

But there is one thing that I do hate
At bath times, fuss I do create 
And mum and dad, they get real mad
I suppose I do play up a tad.

And also I do hate that school
With all its daft, and silly rules
But when I write my little stories
That’s when I get my share of glory.

But really, If I had the choice
I’d really like to raise my voice
And tell them ‘I want out of this!!
Being a child gives me no bliss!’

    I initially related to this piece, but at the end, when said it gave you no bliss, I know, for me, the opposite would be true. I mourn my youth when times were simpler, when I didn't have to worry about grown-up things, when I didn't give a thought to mortality or having to pay bills. I liked your piece, even though I disagreed at the end. Kudos to you for writing such a relatable, then unrelatable piece lol Seriously, good job :)
