When I think of how life used to be
I just miss those times that I was me
A menace to all, who crossed my path
Even escaping mom’s hot water bath

I flattened the tyres, of some new bike
It stood there outside, stand on spike
Ran away fast, to watch the fun too
Dad said, “Come see what I got for you”

I put the dog’s bone, in a saucer of milk
Gave it to Puss, in mommy’s finest silk
Alas again, my plans became undone
Mom saw it and spoiled my little fun

I dabbed some honey, on golden hair
Sis was asleep, didn’t awaken there
An hour later, she awoke with scream
I stood in corner, her hair was trimmed

When I think of how life used to be
I still am the same, loving and naughty
I wrote this poem, in dad’s finest paper
How I’ll suffer now, that’s a new caper

For Carry On Tuesday Prompt

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
