A time where life was always unique —
We wish to go back to hide and seek —
And play with kids whose names we didn’t even know.
But now nothing is the same —
Our hearts grew darker to embrace the change —
And life gave us winters without snow.
We were young —
Every day chasing the fun —
And the world’s shadows adored our glow.
We were kids, simple as-is —
On swings and slides we’d call dibs —
And to every newcomer we’d say “hello.”
Nothing could ruin the good in us —
We didn’t care who we were —
we could be everything all at once.
Not the color of our skin,
nor the seed of our kin,
could dim our little sinless lights —
Our language was laughter,
our hearts were masters,
of carrying sunshine through lows and highs —
We miss the safety of the playground —
The mountain tops in my hometown —
Memories seem so distant yet not long ago.
