Take Me Back

I used the theme #3: Small Kid Time. The word count is 100. As a high school student, I'm starting to feel the adult pressures and responsibilities. It makes me miss being a kid.


Our life was a playground
Not a desk of books piled high
Homework was only for a bad day
Not every day
Boys had cooties
Not raging hormones
Sleeping in was only until eight
Not noon
Beauty meant brushing your hair as mom said to
Not make-up
Friends shared their PB and Js
Not their problems
Love was what we saw in Disney
Not this mess of confusion
I wanted to grow up
I wanted to be free
I wanted to feel loved
Not this
Reality should have been more patient
Make me a kid again
Let me be free
