Just a short poem about childhood innocence and adulthood

Do you remember when you did not have a care in the world?

When the days were filled with Saturday cartoons and soggy cereal?

When staying up late was fun and rising early was the best?

When you were free to play in a fantasy and your wildest dreams could and would come true?

When did those days end?

How long did it last before we realized that superman could not save everyone, and batman was just a regular guy?

When did we lose our innocence? Our freedom?

Where did our childhood go?

How many movies did we stop watching because it was not real?

How many comic books did we burn because we learned that fantasy did not exist?

One day we will return.

One day we will have kids of our own and we will see.

WE will see that superman is the best and batman is still cool.

That Saturday cartoons could not get any better and soggy cereal was surprisingly good.

One day well pick up that comic and read it without stopping. And soon well binge watch frozen just because we can.

Yes, one day our innocence will return.

One day we will go back to being little kids, who did not have a care.

And when we do, I will see you there.

See you soon innocence.

I remember those days... my imagination ran free and Santa Claus was real.
I really enjoyed reading this poem.
