Crow Tuesday: Blow Your Nose

I miss the honesty of childhood.

The way my friends told me

the truth

in words, in play

or in crumpled up 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.

Not saying what’s really true,

not expressing

how they really feel.

  1. We should never loose that โ€œ kid attitude โ€œ 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 โ€œfactualโ€ husband……should make me feel blessed๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

      1. I m the first one to laugh about myself but I can be very โ€œtouchyโ€.hope we ll never clash dear ….all this sensitivity…..but naaaa we are too nice ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿฆ‡
        They really should add a crow emoji ,so unfair๐Ÿ˜ก

      1. 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.
