I Miss

I miss acting cute when I made a mess and getting away with it
I miss watching hours of TV like there was no Tomorrow.
I miss the time I Had.
I could have builded an entire Lego fort, but now time is slipping through my hands like sand in a clenched fist.
I miss the joys of life. I miss just watching simple things and questioning life and being told.
“When you’re older”
Now I wish I never over thought life
I miss the soft hands tuck me in to a hobbit hole; being protected by the evil witches.
I miss the digging in dirt and not worrying about my nails.
I miss catching frog after frog in the pond.
Then getting sunburn with no lecture attached to it.
I miss just snapping away with the old camera.
I miss being the innocent one
I miss having a crush and having no big deal about it.
I miss getting 8 hours of sleep.
I miss not having the world’s troubles in my hands.
I miss crying and not be told I was a wimp.
I miss how the world would revolve around me.
I miss making a human PB and J sandwich.
One would be the bread, the other would the jelly, and the other would be peanut butter and bread.
I like the new freedom
But I would trade that in
For all the things I Miss.

This was amazing! i loved the fresh overall attitude, even tho you were trying to show something deeper. You got ur point across without sounding morbid and cynical. Great work!

beautiful!! this reminds me of how a new grown up goes through his/her new stages of life. The simple joys, easiness, laziness, and fun of childhood are a thing of his/her past, and now he/ she has to slowly close that door and unlock the gateway to adulthood.
