Free verse, Poem

Day 97: When

When I was a child,
I was innocent
And I believed in love.

When I was a teenager,
I was cynical
And I believed in lies

When I was a youth,
I was lost
And I believed in others

When I was an adult,
I was found,
And I believed in only me

When I was a elder,
I forgot all the things I believed,
And just began to believe

  1. I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone’s post this quickly after they posted it haha. Anyhow, this is the first of your poems that I have read, and it was beautiful. I admire the way you can tell a complete touching story in such few words. x
