Never apologize for saying what you feel because that's like saying sorry for being real.

We remember what it was like

to have no worries
we remember what it was like
to be carefree

We remember how simple it was
when we were all also once a child
When our biggest worry was playing hide & seek
and where to hide

We remember what it felt like
to smile at everything
and to throw a tantrum
on every little thing

We remember when it seemed
that the world was so very big
when we feared the dark
and the monster under our beds

We remember when we became
knights and princesses, heroes and villains
when we could save the world
in our very own bedrooms

We remember how fun it was
to play games together and fight
and the next day
it would all be the same

We remember the days
where nothing mattered
we could act and do whatever
and nobody was judged

We remember when we dreamed
we made wishes on the stars
we hoped for toys
and games to play

but most of all
we remember what it was to be free
and all that mattered
was that we were happy

It's a piece I wrote to reminisce what it was like to be a little kid.
