I wish I can get back to that time


I wish I can get back to that time
when walking and climbing the chair was the biggest struggle,
and all I can hear was the sound of my endless giggle.
When the ultimate joy was playing and pulling that fake gun trigger.
When the only reason I loved going to school was to get that star sticker;
And 2+2 was all I wanted to figure.
But as life goes on, everything starts to change and get tougher.
And the chair is no longer the trouble.
And you may go through moments of hysterical pressure;
That make your life grimmer.
But here come the great memories to shine on it and make it glitter.

  3. What a great poem! I love the way the words flow. I especially love the feeling behind it--I would guess most of us miss those days of stickers and 2+2.

  5. I love how you captured such a nostalgic feeling in your poem, Masa! The first 3 lines were really powerful images of childhood -- such small worries, like climbing on a big chair, and such carefree happiness with your "endless giggle". Thank you for sharing!
