    back in the day, when days were so long
    kids played and played til what seemed like the break of dawn
    mom said "u better be home before that light(street) comes on
    but i purposely stay out and wait for my moms voice to hum..my name
    now that i am an adult, days seem like only hours and minutes
    early mornings and late nights and the time in the middle is never spent right
    **** i meant to this or i meant to do that, but its just not enough time in a day anymore
    im pretty sure...
    if i could go back in the day i would
    simply to cherish what i could...specifically the time in a day
    im young, employed, educated and very dedicated to success
    but such little time in a day presents stress
    yet something tells me that the time in a day is the same as it was
    its just that ive grown up and now i must do the things that a grown up does

    I would love to go back in the day and just play,which children do not do these days.Waiting patiently for the ice cream man to come around and begging for 50 cents (not the rapper thank you very much).The days of Sesame Street,Reading Rainbow and Punky Brewster...I was an 80's child :D

    Wouldn't it be fun to just "play"?
    This poem has me thinking back....nice one
