Daily Poem 11/11/2020

We were just kids then

Building forts, and riding bikes

We drifted along

Feathers floating in the currents of life

Swimming in ponds, and pools, and lakes

Running as fast as we could to grow up

We were just kids then

Blowing bubbles, blowing out candles

Ripping the wrapping paper off gifts

We don’t even remember now

That we ever received them

The streets called our names as we wove

Stories between them

And the end of the day we made our ways home

We were just kids then

We didn’t know so much

We knew everything

We knew nothing

Adulthood couldn’t come soon enough

And would never leave

We ran and we run

Waiting for the sun to go down

So we can make our way home

We are just kids, then
