to whom it may concern:- i hereby tender my resignation as an adult, i have decided i would like to accept the responsibilities of a 6 year old again. i want to got to Mc donalds and think that it's a four star resturant. i want to sail matchsticks across a fresh puddle and make waves with stones. i want to think m&m s are better than money, because you can eat them. i want to play football at break time. i want to return to a time when life was simple. when all you knew were colours, addition tables and simple nusery rhymes, but that didn't bother you , because you didn't know what you didn't know and you didn't care. when all you knew was to be happy, because you didn't know all the things that should make you worried and upset. i want to think the world is fair. that everyone in it is honest and good. i want to believe that anything is possible. somewhere in my youth i matured and i learned too much. i learned of nuclear weapons, war, predjudice, starvation and abused children. i learned of lies, unhappy marriges, suffering , illness, pain and death. i learned of a world where men left their families to go and fight for our country, and returned only to end up living on the streets begging for their next meal. i learned of a wiorld where children knew how to kill and did. what happened to the time when we thought everyone would live forever, because we didn't grasp the concept of death. when we thought the worst thing in the world was if you were the last one to be picked for the football side. i want to be oblivious to the complexity of life and be overly excited by the little things in life. i want to return to the days when reading was fun and music was clean. when television was used to report the news or for family entertainment and not to promte sex, violence and deciet. i remember being naive and thinking that everyone was happy because i was. i would spend my time climbing trees and riding my bike. i didn't worry about time, bills or where i was going to find the money to fix the car. i want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs, a kind word , truth, justice, peace, dreams, the imagination, mankind and santa claus. I WANT TO BE 6 AGAIN.
