    I wonder

    If someone

    Might come out

    And play with me...

    All jokes aside ~

    I like people to be free

    Plays well with children

    That describes us to a "T"

    Let's stop the killing and enjoy eternity

    This makes me think back to days where the kids were free to play outside and the doors were unlocked during the day. Such peace in this piece brother poet.

    1poetsought - I'm with Waz on this. I love the innocence of those moments and the promise of your words for a new year of such new moments. Thanks for the inspiration 1poetsought. I feel a lot better now and ready to play for good times ahead, even unto eternity. Namyh

    I appreciate the sentiments of this piece. I want to holla, Rodney King style, "can't we just all get along." cause I miss being able to interact and play with my brothers and sisters. Cause I can remember when the neighborhood was my background and I just had to be home when the street lights came on
