Back When

Back when
blackberries were just berries.
Back when
apples were just fruits.

Back when
things weren't so expensive.
Back when
products were better-made.

Back when
math didn't involve the alphabet.
Back when
English was the only language I needed.

Back when
"That's what she said," wasn't dirty.
Back when
minds rarely ventured to the gutter.

Back when
boys were just friends.
Back when
drama wasn't so bad.

Back when
reality hadn't struck.
Back when
I was eager to grow up.

Back when
I was a child.
Back when
life was simple.
