Childhood

Those were the days
Carefree days
Trouble-free days
No responsibilities
No pressure
No life changing mistakes
No life changing decisions
Your actions were justified by your age
For some tasks you were under-age
Your parents were to write your life page
Not victimized by minimum wage
Not victimized by unemployment
Just a victim of stage enjoyment

These are adulthood days
Anxious days
Trouble-some days
Unending responsibilities
Pressure dominant phase
Only life changing mistakes
Only life changing decisions
You account for your actions
For all tasks you’re in perfect age
You’re to prune your life stage
Victimized by minimum wage
Victimized by unemployment
Strangered to enjoyment

Stress is the only usual in adulthood.
Heavy burden of womanhood
sometimes makes me wanna scream,
“I wanna be a baby again!”

For Fandango’s One Word Challenge, baby
For Word Of The Day Challenge, usual
