Here's One

I Wish I Was A Child

I wish I was a child,
so I could believe

that you wouldn’t lie to me,
that you wouldn’t deceive.

I wish I was a kid again.
If I was then I would know

that I’d want to be grown up.
I’d just want to grow.

When we’re childlike, we see the world through a set different eyes.

Eyes that are virgin pure. Pupils of disguise.

Years and time attack the eyes in the form of lies and rage
As the child becomes older and the child starts to age.

My eyes have become calloused,
hardened with life’s debris.
I hear them say they’ll be there.
I watch but I don’t see.

Blinded by perfect vision.
Sight impaired and damned.
A child’s eyes will start to tear.
When the child becomes…
A man.
