Simpler Days

I wish to return to
the innocence of days past.


To the times where
daily stresses
were non-existent.


We didn't worry about
what people thought of us;
only our best friends mattered.


We didn't have to work;
our lives revolved around play.


We were happy with ourselves
not consumed by self-hate.


Oh to the simpler days,
what a memory to ponder.
