"Poetry is thoughts that breathe, and words that burn. "
Thomas Gray


The pictures reflecting my past,
Show joy, pride,
And ignorance.
How did I not see,
Any of this coming?
But I guess it doesn't matter,
I was a child then.
Now I know,
What is real and what is fake.
I will never make the same mistake,
Now if only I knew,
What mistake not to make.

When I was a kid I didn't care about anything important, like my future, my weight, and my personality

I'm going to smile and make you think I'm happy, I'm going to laugh, so you don't see me cry, I'm going to let you go in style, and even if it kills me - I'm going to smile.~Anonymous

"Ignorance is bliss." Childhood wouldn't be nearly as happy and carefree if we'd known everything we know now. We'd grow up too fast and miss out on a lot.

If it isn't a mistake, what is it?

This is a lovely, sad poem. It's well written, and I understand the meaning fully. I can definately relate to this. But, personally, I wouldn't call the naivety and ignorance of childhood a mistake.
