Faith Like A Child

February 28, 2012

Sometimes I admire them
The children laughing,
Playing on the school playground
No cares, no worries, no tears
The weight of the world overlooks them
And piles on top of me

Sometimes I admire her
My sister with a joyous smile
On her face
Twirling around in a pretty dress
Laughing with her friends
Never alone

And every moment I long for childhood
The world throws it back in my face
Naivete is overrated
And my heart's already been tainted
With the corruption of society

Sometimes I admire them
Those whose spirits are light and free
Those that believe in hope
Hope that seems gone
Then perhaps it's not
Perhaps the world needs
Faith like a child
