Deep in my Heart I desire to be a Kid again

The source of love is deep in us and we can help others realize a lot of happiness. One word, one action, one thought can reduce another person’s suffering and bring that person joy.  – Thich Nhat Hanh

Somewhere deep in my heart l desire to go 
back in time and become a kid again. I miss 
those days when I was innocent, carefree and 
free spirited .There was no stress, no tension, 
no pressures and no expectations. My world 
was free from gossips, manipulations and 
backstabbing. That was the time when I didn't 
know what words like jealousy, hatred and 
racism meant. That was a time when I had 
faith in people whom I called friends. Life was 
so peaceful, beautiful and amusing. But now 
all that seems like once upon a time. But 
seriously If I had a choice I would never grow 
up ... But if wishes were horses we would never 
have broken and shattered dreams and fulfill all 
our desires.

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. - Edgar Allan Poe
