Do what you like and like what you do.


Remember that one time

When you didn't cry

For all the wrongs?



Remember that one time

When you played all day

And smiled without pain?



Remember that one time

When everyone was your friend

Regardless of who they were



Remember that one time

When you carelessly boasted

About your entertaining day?



Remember that one time

When you ran to Mommy's room

Because you had a nightmare?



Where is she now?

Why can't she comfort you

Like she used to?

What happened?



Remember when

You played Dress-up?

You loved to be

Someone you're not

It was so much fun



Remember when

You played House?

You took care

Of the people you were with

It was so much fun



Remember when

You played Hide and Seek?

You hid from the seeker

And giggled when they were near

It was so much fun



Remember when

There was nothing but love

And freedom to play?

Absolutely nothing

Holding you back



Remember when

The only things that scared you

Were small insecurities?

Only some hugs and soothing words

Cured everything



How much do you remember?
