The art of pretend

Used leaves for money notes
Chipped plastic teacups
Made castles out of coats
Its harder now we’re grownups

Flew to space in a cardboard box
Had an invisible friend
Drew on the ground with tiny rocks
Wish I still knew the art of pretend
44 words
Ah, I miss my childhood..

    Right? I know what you mean. I used to be so carefree and I could make something out of nothing and all that, but now, I feel so OLD! And I'm only 14, so I guess it's only gonna get worse from here...

    I miss how carefree I could be as a child and how nothing really mattered except having fun. Great piece.

    I love this, I miss my childhood too. There was a certain carelessness you could have as a child, that you can't have now without repercussions.
