Extinct

I’ve seen the shiny little eyes
Staring out from under covers
In the shadows where they hide
Giggling quietly together
Little children of our past
Little places we remember
All the questions we once asked
Have we banished to the corners

Are we killing off the magic
On the inside
Are we killing off the children
With their eyes wide
Are we trading in the wonder
For the good life
Are we giving up the hunger
For the sake of having comfort

When the children are extinct
Our imaginations muted
And the eyes no longer see
Will the reasons be important
We were born with bigger hearts
And our heads still undeveloped
Don’t forget the other part
Please don’t ever let them sell it
There is nothing to replace
All the things that can’t be purchased
There’s a small familiar face
Waiting just below the surface
Every child will grow to be
Just a child in bigger skin
Do not sacrifice your dreams
Let the children live within

  1. impressive, your creativity has no bounds. you got me visiting your blog continuously for several days 🙂 i’m gonna add you to my blogroll for easy access.
    everyone of us desire to go back to our childhood. we want that innocence and mischief back. your poem expresses those inner feelings in a creative poetic way. keep up.

  2. The dancing hearts
    Don’t need any music
    The dancing hearts
    Make their own
    The dancing hearts
    Dance with distance
    The dancing hearts
    Sway to love
