Back in the Day

Remember when things
were simple
and people were kind
and love, ample?

No? Neither do I.
Can anyone really say
that times were better
way back when?
Just because you didn’t see
the hatred,
the violence,
the animosity,
doesn’t mean
it didn’t exist.
Your innocent eyes
and pure heart
were just amiss.

So, don’t take me back
to a simpler time
but move me forward
to a happier one.
