Years Of Yesterday This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   I wish I was young enough to:

hold a doll

leave tiny handprints on the wall

suck my thumb

play dumb

trick or treat

have Mommy clean my feet

fingerpaint

When in trouble look like a saint

make a mess

rip my dress

Bang on pots and pans

hold tight to Mommy's hand

read nursery rhymes

Have a tooth fall out and get a dime

wear what my mother picks out

get my way by giving a pout

wear pajamas all day long

sing the alphabet song

ride on the kiddy swings

pretend to be queens and kings

ride the horse in front of K-Mart

express every feeling in my heart

believe in Santa Claus

run around all day without a pause

If wishes came true, I would go back ten years, and play

hide-and-seek all day without any cares.
