Children's Eyes

8 0 0

I once was a kid,

Just like we all were.

I once saw the world through child-eyes.

I once chased butterflies,

And caught them.

I once danced through fields of flowers,

Breathed in the scent,

Of unattained dreams.

I once stared at a window,

and thought of all the beautiful things beyond.

But I no longer am a kid.

I now see the world through adult-eyes.

Butterflies are chased,

But never seized.

Field are left unbothered.

The aroma of dreams still lingers in the air,

Waiting to be found,

But left hidden.

I now stare at windows and only see the rain,

The clouds.
