Do you remember
Being you & free,
Building those sandcastles
Swimming in the sea.
Playing on our skates
And making dens
This was our fun,
We didn’t need
Technology back then.
Having no care in the world
We was running wild,
This is what it’s like
Being a child.
We’d climb to the top
Of every tree,
Go home filthy
With cuts on our knees.
The play times changed
as we grew old,
The bonds were formed
From the memories we hold.
To talk about a time
That brought us pleasure,
A grin appears
They’re ours to Treasure.

    This was beautiful. I loved the times when I would play outside with my friends in the summer but now everyone’s glued to their phones and it isn’t as fun anymore 🙁

    It is odd how many of us grownups miss these days and yet it is our kids who are not having them……

  8. Memories of a tech free childhood. I’m glad I have those.
    A gorgeous rhyme and a gentle indictment of those tech savy kids who will never know the thrill of almost falling out of a tree only to catch yourself and decide to climb higher cause “why not”
    Great piece!!
