When I Was Little

When I was little

You took me outside

And you told me to look up

And my mind was filled with so much wonder

When I was little

You took me to the land of dreams

And you told me to imagine

And my heart was filled with so much enthusiasm

I felt as though I were unstoppable

 

When I was little

You told me great stories

And you told me to listen

And my eyes were filled with so much color

I felt like I was in a rainbow

 

I am not little anymore

You do not fill me with wonder

To you awful words of discouragement
