Retrospection-Viola Patrao

They were good old times,
Playing games and learning rhymes.
Laughing about something funny,
Splashing paint and eating honey.
Painting poodles and making statues,
Using markers to make tattoos.
Playing with dinosaur toys and action figures,
Going backyard and pretending to be gold diggers.
Fishing with my dad on a boat,
Making a Chinese dragon float.
Racing with my shadow at noon,
Flinging food at people with my spoon.
Declaring garbage as art,
Using posters as aim for darts.
Taking part in garage sale,
Laughing-out-loud at an epic fail.
Watching butterflies soar through the sky,
Acting like a bird and trying to fly.
Watching fireworks blend with the sky,
Trying my best not to lie.
Going out to watch movies with friends,
Getting angry at parental amends.
Acting all shallow and deep,
Freaking out when you’re being stalked like a creep.
Surfing the net with a smile,
Having your grades served in a file.
Reading magazines all of fame,
Going popular and acting lame.
Chanting ‘Oh My God!’ when things aren’t alright,
Trying to act calm with all your might.
Escaping out through my door,
Doing things I don’t even know.
Times like these are claimed as history,
But who knows what will happen tomorrow? It’s a mystery!

So be glad with your present and past, because you don’t even know how long it will last.
