Wrote this while suffering  from a migraine. Origins of this came from listening to music I grew up with as a kid. So I started to type and after a while this came into being. In simple terms it's a poem about how simple childhood was compared to the trials of an adult life. 

If you are interested in what music I was listening to circa '98, then I'll briefly name a few bands I heard then and I'm still listening to this very day. Fleetwood Mac, Van Halen, Free, Boston, Rainbow, Thin Lizzy, Deep Purple and Guns N' Roses. I absolutely hated the music that was contemporary at the time, though that's not changed at all. I hate modern music more now haha.

Very powerful, again the word choices were amazingly simplistic and yet powerful. I really loved that the refrain kept repeating it brought back a sort of sepia toned memory of yesteryear and yet that belief that things were always better "way back when".

Sometimes I have found simple word choices can be more powerful than complex ones. At the time of writing I was spending my time thinking back to my childhood and how much things were different than they are now. So I intended for there to be a sort of sepia feel to the piece as though looking at faded photographs or an old film reel.

I deeply enjoyed this. Not just because it's well-written, but because I've recently been experiencing a lot of nostalgia over that time period in my life. Especially when the Internet was a much, much different place. Beautiful writing. I think I'm going to have to watch you. :rose:

I would reply with "Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed this and thanks for the watch too", but since you abruptly stop watching me only after half a day, I fail to see the liberty in doing so. Apologies if this comes across as rude. I'm merely frustrated and annoyed.

This is stunning, I really like the style, the more I think about it the more I love it. I've been awake for more than 24 hours though so I can't really say anything professional. I just really like the feeling this gives me, and I especially love how you ended it. And it speaks to me on a personal level too, as I have always worried about growing up and how time flies too fast. I've been an adult for a while now too, and yet the thought of it still scares me, and the thought of never going to be able to return to childhood again. Eitherway, I really need to sleep now, I wish I could express properly what I meant but ohwell
