Take me back #WednesdayVerses

Take me back

With a long list of things to do,

From one thing to the next I run,

Caught in this mess, I wonder,

Wasn’t life supposed to be fun?

My body craves for that restful sleep,

While I battle through nightmares of tomorrow.

My mind craves for those moments of peace,

But I end up in the depths of sorrow.

Life has become a crazy race,

And I long for those days before.

Take me back to the time,

When smiles were more.

When I was little, I wanted to grow up,

Because being an adult looked great.

But growing up was such a mistake,

For life now is in a perpetually crazy state.

Take me back to the time,

When all I had to worry about was homework being done,

When tears were wiped away in no time,

Take me back to the time when life was fun.
