This week we asked you to write a memoir piece beginning with the words, “I miss my childhood”.
We also asked you to keep it to 500 words. Just a reminder word count limits are there for a reason: to help you self-edit, and also to help our community members read more than a post or two.
I miss my childhood innocence.
Before I knew that people died,
That people lied.
Before I knew there was poverty, pain, illness.
I miss my childhood naivete.
School was the biggest worry in my life.
My only strife
Was chores to do before I played.
I miss my carefree childhood.
No responsibilites except to be a child.
And only striving to be good.
Always, feel free to comment! Trish in AZ
