Message from Writer

"Oh, you'll not be any poorer if you smile along your way. And your lot will not be harder for the kindly things you say. Don't imagine you are wasting time for others that you spend. You can rise to wealth and glory and still pause to be a friend."
Edgar Guest

PROMPT: [Insert Age]

I was a child.
Sunny days, Breathless frights,
Kisses by Daddy, Camping nights,
Playing in creeks, Swinging on ropes,
Songs by evening, Never ending hopes.

Then I grew some.
Reading a Hardy Boy's book,
Finding a pretty, woodsy nook,
School is hard but I like it,
Stretched by the campfire I lit.

Then I grew some more..
Then I noticed to much around me,
Feeling hurt like no one loved me,
Wishing I could be so great,
Always feeling just to late.

Now I'm 18.
I don't get kisses from Daddy,
I'm not quite that carefree,
I don't read the Hardy Boy's,
I don't feel that lonely.

I try to enjoy every moment,
I laugh all I want and don't care,
My childhood is gone, kinda sad.
But my life is not gone,
Challenge yourself, and smile.

    Re: Looks like I got a new book on my tbr!
    I haven‘t read anything from Oscar Wilde yet… I don‘t agree with that though. I believe boys and girls can be friends. For one, I have a boyfriend and a guy best friend and they are really close as well and he respects our friendship. It also shows I‘m with my boyfriend because I like him, not because he is just a guy. Also, what are bi- or pansexual people going to do? Stay friendless for eternity? xD
    What do you think?

    I love the comparison of when people are younger to when they get older. It‘s a little sad to think about it… :(
