Back When I Was Younger

Hi everyone, I hope you’re all well! I’m sharing a poem today, I hope you enjoy it!

Back When I Was Younger

Back, when I was younger
And the world was younger too
The haze of carefree childhood
Hid reality from my view

There was little to be afraid of
Save for the shadows in the dark
And worries were not of climate change
But of staying longer the park

I knew nothing of the economy
Or the price of food and drink
And about staying up an extra hour
Was of all that I could think

Growing up seemed so distant
Uncountable years away
Time stretched into forever
I was just living for the day

But all too soon the world was real
The growing up had started
And the woes of adulthood lay ahead
On a road still to be charted

As always, thanks so much for reading my words! It really means a lot.

Until next time,
