When we were young we were strong no one could hurt us as long, as we were together supporting each other for ever.

With the sun in the sky we ran for hours, our spirits high. Caring and sharing our days learning and growing in so many ways.

Going to school holding hands learning the rules, happily playing all day finding out many truths on the way.

Growing up together leaning on each other taught us more than all the lessons or all the books. It has made us strong taught us right from wrong , shown us when to laugh and when to cry . Now we are grown we may be miles apart but together with love our hearts are sown.

    For most people childhood was just like this. A wonderful fun time. For far too many of our kids, childhood is different due to abuse, molestation, poverty and Illiteracy. The New Year is an opportunity to change childhood for these kids. Hugs, Barbara

      OH! yes Barbara I do hope we can start to improve the life of the unfortunate children who are failed by the system . We need love and care we need more friendships. Happy New Year my dear friends!

    Goodness me – I hated my life as an adolescent – and from what I am told I was a boy who cried and screamed all the time (not that I can remember those years till I was 4 or so). But then, let’s see, maybe there is a window in there of a couple of years, yes I believe so – a moment of sunshine around 8-10 years of age, I do believe so when I was not terrrified or whinging and whining or all at once. Thank you for your post….

      Hi I am sorry to hear that you had such a hard time as a child. I myself was a lonely child even though I came from a large family I was eight years younger than the next child and fourteen years younger than the eldest sister I was often on my own. I was also bullied at school and for a while at work. I wrote that poem from imagination. In adulthood I have formed very close friendships and a friendship from school. One girl who befriended me when I was thirteen and we are still in touch to this day. So I really hope that things are better with you now .I wish you a happy new year and look forward to see your posts. 😉

        Hi there – things are much better for me now – I think my masochism is and was originally a protective thing – now the problem is that the protection is my problem, if that makes sense. But the protection worked in that I have found a much saner and better life than when I was young. Happy new year to you too!

        Life can be so cruel or is mean a better word. I think we both have turned out okay. I hope we both stay that way . Be lucky and happy.

        I will do my best for that – at the moment for some reason I am riding higher upswings of mood – and deeper depressions than before. No risk of death etc, but it is a pretty weird thing to be exploring and revisiting. I feel it is good for me though so long as it does not wreck everything I have managed to pull together that is…
