i wish i am still a child
free from the worries of an adult world
full of  love and innocence
unconditional and not profit oriented

i wish worries and regret never met me
laughter and joy to always surround me
tears and pain will avoid me
and forever to be always merry

what a wonderful world it could have been
if all the negative emotion was not here
no pain or regret, no tears and pain
only happiness and a whole lot of merry making

rest day

i have a job that needed attention
from monday to friday until five in the afternoon
come saturday and sunday
is my designated rest day

they say all i have to do is rest
stop worrying about the office pests
but as i woke up every saturday
it's not really my rest day

the laundry is screaming 
the kitchen needs scrubbing
the toilet needs cleaning
and my room needs tidying

sunday is even worse
i have to iron my clothes
i have to clean the porch
and only then can i go to church

saturday and sunday 
rest day is a lie
it's only an imagination
it's only an illusion
