I resign

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

I have started to look for poems to post to describe how I feel on a given day. I think most of us feel this way on a regular basis. Enjoy!

I Resign

I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult.
I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities of an 8-year-old again.
I want to go to McDonald's and think that it's a four star restaurant.
I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and make ripples with rocks.
I want to think M&Ms are better than money because you can eat them.
I want to lie under a big oak tree and run a lemonade stand with my friends on a hot summer day.
I want to return to a time when life was simple.
When all you knew were colors, multiplication tables, and nursery rhymes, but that didn't bother you, because you didn't know what you didn't know and you didn't care.

All you knew was to be happy because you were blissfully unaware of all the things that should make you worried or upset.
I want to think the world is fair. That everyone is honest and good.
I want to believe that anything is possible.
I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life and be overly excited by the little things again.
I want to live simple again.
I don't want my day to consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork, depressing news, how to survive more days in the month than there is money in the bank, doctor bills, gossip,illness, and loss of loved ones.

I want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs, a kind word, truth, justice, peace, dreams, the imagination, mankind, and making angels in the snow.'s my checkbook and my car keys, my credit cards and all my responsibility.

I am officially resigning from adulthood. And if you want to discuss this further, you'll have to catch me first, 'cause,

"Tag! You're it."

    I enjoyed this post a lot. Makes one think back to when things were so much easier as kids, unaware of what lies ahead down the road. Then once again reality sets in and darn we have to get things done, it comes along with growing up. Along the ways things for children are a bit tougher these days too. Both parents working to meet expenses, so many activities no longer offered at school and of course all the bullying going on---yes guess things were alot easier back when.

    well, do it then!

    btw, don't know a kid alive who wouldn't trade his 'happiness' for the car keys and a credit card...

    What a great notion, a chance to return to happier times. I suppose all we can do now is try to find those simple, wonderful moments with those we love.

    Thanks for the great post!
