I wish I never got old

From an egg
I grew to flesh and bones.
I got those cute little hands
that cute face
those cute lips

those hilarious cute words
those first steps
that cute little smile
that cute laughter
and those cute eyes.

Everything was beautiful
everything was perfect
till we grew and became older.
We experienced love,
we experienced disappointments.

We experienced pain
emotionally and
through sexual abuse
but we made it through.

We laughed,
we cried,
we got hurt.
We remembered the old days
long, long ago
when we were kids.

When we enjoyed
everything in life.
That’s when we just thought
and said “I wish I never got old”.
