A Kid Again

If I could just go back….

not back in the sense of doing a complete life’s do-over

but just back for a 24-hour period

going back

to being

a kid again

for even the smallest period of time

means

being emerged in complete naiveté

dipped and bathe in uncorrupted sweetness

and actual innocence

To be a kid again

if only for a single day

I’d bask  in

sleeping in

irresponsibility

nonchalantness

selfishness

using the car

not having to refill the tank

eating

without replenishing the groceries

not having a care in the world

putting me first

and foremost

Before the expiration

of time swept me

back to my current reality

I’d tell the girl version of me

embrace and appreciate

as many individual moments

as possible

trust your gut

listen to your instinct

think every single instance through

and live your life to the absolute fullest

don’t let it live you!
