I miss the honesty of childhood.
The way my friends told me
in words, in play
or in crumpled notes.
I miss friends
who teased me
about my looks,
who said shut up,
blow your nose
and read a book.
Not like the adult world
of smiles, deception
and awkward stares.
Never saying what’s true,
how they feel.
Seriously! The kids I nanny can be brutally honest. It’s refreshing.
I can imagine. Sounds like they have fun. 😃
They finally get to be kids 🙂
We should never loose that “ kid attitude “ at least not completely.totally relate to this post and feel much better as sometimes honesty is condemned and criticized and so too many people tend to take themselves too seriously.
I have a very “factual” husband……should make me feel blessed😂😂😂
When we were kids, we seemed to take criticism better. As an adult I find myself to be way too sensitive and defensive. 🙁
I m the first one to laugh about myself but I can be very “touchy”.hope we ll never clash dear ….all this sensitivity…..but naaaa we are too nice 😉🦇
They really should add a crow emoji ,so unfair😡
The fact that I can talk about it means that I probably am not as sensitive as I think. 😊
I was thinking my just that😊
Kids have a straightforward way of looking at things and just don’t mind telling you their findings! 🙂
Yes, you always know where they’re coming from.
Yes, my friend. Childhood was blessedly authentic. May your inner-child always be. Well expressed! 💫
Thank you for the comment. 🙂
Blessed be! 🙏💫
Hi I just sent you a comment in your Poetry Passion post about using my picture and getting permission first. Get back to me. Mark
I’m yet to receive the comment after moderator’s approval, but I’ve rectified my mistake by removing the illustration. I hope it’s better now, and I’ll remember to ask, henceforth.
Thank you very much. No worries. 🙏🏻
Gratitude for your patience! 🙏💫
Oh simply lovely. And honest. Just like a child…
Thanks. I have a strong inner child. 👶
