A Day To Remember
Last week I went to our farm and , I've not been there for a long time, very long time since childhood .
As I got there I found many places there that reminded me of my childhood
So I stepped through the gate and I took a walk along with other people I went there with
I felt Like I was seeing myself , the younger me, running around playing and caring about nothing else
In the same places I used to go to when I was a kid
However, while I was walking I bent down to get pass a metal bar and
As soon as I raised my head up, then there was BANG ! there was another
Metal bar and I knocked my head to that bar ( I forgot about it, when I was a kid I went beneath it with no difficulty)
But now that I'm taller I didn't watch out for that
I told th3e others to go on while I laid down and put some tissue to cover the blood
As I was lying there , I saw myself again, the younger me, walking around , playing
Then I Imagined ( notice Imagined only) a conversation between the younger me and the older me (ME now)
My imagination :
He came and sat across from me and he was staring at me
puzzled at how much change he would go through when he turns 22 years old
Older Me :when I was your age . everything was so comfortable . there were no responsibilities
And nothing to be bothered about
\Younger me : *silence*
Older me : I didn't see myself the way I'm looking at you now.
I guess I didn't discover myself to the fullest when I was your age
Younger me : I don't understand
Older me : you should be . I'm glad I didn't understand things in my life until later.
Still though I wish when I was at your age that someone told me what was going to happen
On my road of life. I wish I didn't have to go through painful experiences to learn that something was right
And the other thing was wrong . I should have recognized many things and not just roam recklessly
In many things. But I'm glad that I went through tat this stage in my life
So that it could save me any embarrassments in the future or failure.
Younger me : I going to go . Kids are calling we're going to play
Older me: just go and forget what I said . have fun . live your moment , You could deal with
Everything at the appropriate time cause I trust you.
I went out seeing the beautiful sunset over that beautiful place. Tears sparkling against the sun rays
It was a day to remember .
