Looking back,
everything was so simple,
so pure.

Laughs everywhere,
not a care in the world
Those years were nice
Maybe even the best so far

But with age comes
a burden: knowledge.
To know life
is to truly know despair

So during the
worst of times,
I choose to forget
and be pure once more
Yep, another poem. I've got a bunch more that I'll be posting over some period of time. I'm trying to write poetry more often, since I don't have the time to write stories.

Let me know what you think! Any comments would be much appreciated!

I enjoyed this poem, as it conveys what you are trying to say quite nicely. It feels a little more like prose than poetry, but perhaps that was your intention. Altogether, excellent work.

My prose and poetry tend to sound like each other, if that makes sense. I'm not really sure if it does. Thank you for the input, though! I appreciate it :)

It's a lot of people's life story. For some, it just takes longer to reach certain parts than others
