When I Was A Child

When I was a child
The sky looked so blue and bright
The moon mesmerising and magnificent
The stars twinkled and winked all night
A watchful eye, drove away the fright
When I was a child.

When I was a child
The chirping of the birds and the buzzing busy bees
Was like music, so beautiful, so serene
The dogs seemed scary and the cats malicious
The butterflies felt like friends
And all the bugs annoyed me to no end
When I was a child.

When I was a child
Mother’s lullaby and father’s life  lessons
Were a treasure to carry forever
Brother’s teasing and fights
Made memories all the more funny and light
Love for the family, love for the friends swelled my heart like a big balloon
When I was a child.

When I was that child
The world was beautiful
It was the fairyland of my bedtime stories
It was all I ever knew it was
My sanctuary, my happy place
When I was that child.

Now that I grew up
The ugliness leaked out
The dark patches came to light
The hidden stories revealed
It shocked me to see the fairies were wicked
And the magic was false
No sanctuary was ever found, all seemed lost
My love, my peace, my hope
All was untrue, all in waste
The ugly nightmares raised their heads
And I shrunk with fear
The fear of the black shawdows and demons
And I realised I never wanted to grow up
Never wanted a part of this world
And I wished I was back in my fairy land
When I was a child.
