CAN WE GO BACK TO THE TIME: Lessons from a child

Can we go back to the time?
When our hearts knew no guile
When we had no ill will or grudge;
How sweet were our hearts then

Can we go back to the time?
When we had no worries
For we knew our needs would be met
Hence our trust didn’t shake

Can we go back to the time?
When we told the truth
And honesty was our watchword
In all that we ever did

Can we go back to the time?
When we were curious to know
When life was a quest
When to seek answers was adventurous

Can we go back to the time?
When our love was unadulterated
And our affections were true
When hugs and kisses were pure
Can we all go back?

LEGACY

When our book is opened, we begin to write
Doesn’t matter whether we’re wrong or right
Its inescapable, whether we’re young or old
We all got stories about us that’ll be told
So I guess the first thing is to make our writing legible
So our life’s writ won’t be considered ineligible
Every now and then, we turn over a new leaf
And keep on writing, from our morals to beliefs
But what we write really matters
Cos they may crush us or make us fly like Wright brothers
Don’t leave problems without solutions
Because some will not check the appendices
Six score max, and our life is blown out
Fix all, fast before we’re thrown out
Cos when our book is closed and shelved
People will talk about our lives
What will people say about you in the grave
Just think about it while you live…
