When I was young years ago, it seemed like the spirit moved through the trees more often,
and there was never any malice in the air
in the shadows,
even the ghosts were innocent of blood,
and were seldom scary.
Everything was so different back then.

Oh this poem really moved me why? Because it got me thinking back to my childhood. Everything seemed so innocent. There was joy in the air and the sound of laughter. The only alarm clock was your parents voice calling you in for tea.
I Loved this post thank you so much
