If I met my 7 years old self today
What would I tell her?
What would I say?
Would I warn her of the future
Of the bad things yet to come?
Or would I leave her to be naive
To keep having fun?
Because my 7 year old self
Believe the world a perfect place,
Would she recognise herself,
When she looked into my face?
Even though I have learnt so much more
And eight years have passed since then,
I would give up everything I have
To view life through her eyes again.
