To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.


Let's swing our legs

in the breezes.

 

Let's listen to the chimes of twinkling of bottles
clinking, gently against each other.

 

Let's create memories,
like we build sand-castles on the beach.

 

Let's watch the waves,
come crashing down yet coming back up again.

 

Let's view the sunset,
meeting and setting the water on fire.

 

Let's laugh and don't care,
as the sand tangles in our hair.

 

Let's let our smiles,
reach our eyes and shine.

 

Let's be kids, again;
let's play.

First off, I hope you get the message. But I'm still going to say it outright, okay? O_o MESSAGE TO EVERYONE FROM EMZ AND YET NOT FROM HER: You're never too old, to play. Okay??? People who say so otherwise? -_- Um, they're wrong. I'll repeat it again: You're never too old, to play. o_O You can still be a kid at heart, but you still have to be mature enough to listen and be willing to love and learn. In shorter words, you can still have and must have a childlike heart. O_o I'm telling the truth. And ... *squints hard at everyone* if you think that I'm not talking about you, I am. *squints at EVERYONE* I know sometimes it's hard to play, since most of our world think that playing is too childish. Well, you know what? Sometimes the world, can be and sometimes is childish. So, we can afford to be childish, now and then. We all must have a childlike heart. "Let's be kids again; let's play." *smiles, softly at everyone with happiness* Let's play.

Haha. Hey, no worries. You can accuse me for me thinking that sometimes I'm too old to play, too; because I sometimes think that too, for when I was younger I had to grow up earlier than most people. I can be charged guilty for that! XD So, that is why I sometimes still think that I am too old to play, haha. My cousin thinks I'm too serious and people think I'm serious too. I'm still serious, but I think more childlike than before, haha. Hopefully. XP   And also, my friend? Go for the bouncy house! XD Haha, it'll be fun, I promise you that; if you want too. ;) XP :)   And also! Haha, thank you! I'm glad you enjoy my writings and that they are okay. XD :) It means a lot to me. Thank you so much, again! :)

I am extremely, glad that you enjoyed it and understood the message. And oh!

---Psalms 8:3-4

This is great! I'm a firm believer in "acting like a kid". The and the reason I have quotes there is because there are times to act childish and have fun, and there are times to be responsible, and time to do both. And I think you did a very wonderful job of representing that! Thank you so much! :) 'There's no point in being grown up if you can't act a little childish sometimes.' --Doctor Who 'That's the real trouble with the world; too many people grow up.' --Walt Disney

Aw, thank you! It really means, a lot. And I'm so glad, that you agree! I see so many people my age around me, and they think they're too old to play. It's alright to play; to be honest, it's more than alright. It's fun, haha. Haha, I don't know if I make sense, but I hope I do a little. ;) :) Thank you so much, again!

Haha, I'm so glad that love it, Liv.Harris. :) Haha, this poem is very different from my other poems. Lol, even my mum says it's very different. :P But, when I wrote this down, I was thinking how sometimes we're all too serious; how even I am sometimes too serious, lol. So, I decided to send the message that it's alright to be a kid or have a childlike heart. :) Haha, thank you so much, for commenting and encouraging me, Liv.Harris. :)
