The Days of a Child

by .. !!-D a R r i N-!! ..   Aug 2, 2005

The Days of a Child were so stress free.
No trying to be anyone else.
Just being myself, being just me.

But as I grew a little older,
Situations were similar.
But my friends grew colder;
Cold hearted, cold spirited and
Only thinking about ones self.
Maneuvering ways to get what they want,
Using selfishness and stealth.

The school work got harder;
Studying for more exams and more test.
But these thing as a child,
I never would have guessed.

Because in the days of a child
We had playgrounds and nice teachers.
Now all we think about
Is sex, money and features.

But I know there’ll come a time
When nothing will be free or given.
Not a car or a house.
There will even be a price for living.

So I know I’m growing up
And I need to be mature.
But those days of a child
Are still knocking at my door.

    This poem holds so much truth that many young people need to learn to see. You did a great job on this and I'm sure that many people can relate to it at least to some degree. I loved it! 5/5 Keep it up!

    Some flow problems but this had been quite well done. Some words were a little iffy but really enjoyed this. This was't know how to describe it except that it was really something that I was really impressed by.

    This one is very interesting. I wasn't sure what you meant with the last line "Are still knocking at my door" but maybe I should read it over again.

    Also I think in the second line it is supossed to be "Not" instead of "No" but yeah.

    And with my poem "Have a Little Fun" it is just basically saying have fun and don't be scared because the pain you feel then leads up to your strength as an adult....same with emotional will hurt but relax it makes you a stronger person.
