Back then

I want to go back
Back to when I was slim 
and trimmed
And all I knew was fun 
fun fun!
Back to when I had no 
worries and loved many 
stories
Back to when no one told 
me my flaws
And I had no idea I was 
so small and short!
Back to when running a 
mile didnt seem like a 
chore
I want to go back then

I want to go back
Back to when school 
wasnt a task
When it hardly mattered 
if you read
When it was like putting 
through the hole of a 
pin,a thread
Back to those delicious 
yam porridge
That got you spending 
with all pleasure and 
courage
Back to those dance 
routines 
That had me feeling like I 
was a part of something
Back to building those 
sand castles
And driving mum crazy 
trying to make waffles
I want to go back then

    Sadly, time is on a one way street and there is no reversing. I like this one. Actually, I did a piece of my own called Topsy-turvy. I even turned it into a song: What if now was yesterday And things are the way they were then Would I be what I am today Or would I be what I was back then? Once again, great piece Iveren

    Nice piece superbly presented. I often times trade through the same path myself. Keep on writing.

    this is full of sincere emotion and nostalgia for good times. I love it.

    What a great piece of Nostalgia. I wonder if one day you will look at today and feel a similar way about now. The further we are away, the better it seems to have been.

    yeah, from the unconscious back to the conscious. That's poetry in the making. That feelings always came knocking at your mind. Wonderful work. I felt the spice in this work.
