"If you can dream- and not make dreams your master;
If you can think- and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;" -R. Kipling


Childhood.

When math was simple

Two ones make two.

That period of time,
Where nothing
Mattered.

Two twos make four.

That short,
But sweet span of time,
Where one could dream
And live
In fantasy.

Two threes make six.

Where one could
Believe
Have faith
And live
The Illusion.

Two fours made eight.

Welcome to Reality.

x=???

We crushed your dreams
A long time ago,
Indeed.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

That is simple yet beautiful. First you experience the innocence and then abruptly it is shattered which is exactly how it really happens so I really liked that poem.
