Like A Child

 
A picture I took of some kids awing at how vast & beautiful the ocean is

Looking at the world through the eyes that see the beauty in all that is around them.
Not tainted by deception or by the experiences of life.
Believing that the problems that come can be fixed with the touch of a Mother's hand.
& the fear that comes at night can't seem to pierce the embrace of a Father's arms.
Because even in the rain, the puddles seem fun.
& the worst of days are the ones that include no ice cream.
Flaws and defects don't seem to exist, since all that is captured is daisies and sun.
There is no need to glaze what is said, as the work of deception isin't yet understood.
Not yet affected by stock markets or frivolous celebrity gossip.
Instead it is questioned when play time will be.

Oh the innocence of a child. How I sometimes wish I could just go back to those days.


Mirando el mundo a través de los ojos que ven la belleza en todo lo que está a su alrededor.
Sin manchas que se causan por el engaño y las experiencias de la vida.
Convencidos que los problemas se pueden solucionar con el toque de la mano de una Madre.
Y el miedo que viene por la noche parece no poder atravesar el abrazo de Papa.
Porque incluso en la lluvia, los charcos parecen divertidos.
Y el peor de los días son los que no incluyen helado.
Las fallas y defectos no parecen existir, ya que todo lo que se captura es margaritas y sol.
Sin necesidad de azucarar lo que se dice, ya que la obra de engaño no ha sido entendido.
No afectado por los mercados de valores o los chismes de la farándula.
En vez se pregunta cuando se podra salir a jugar.


Los que es la inocencia de un niño. Cómo a veces desearía poder regresar a esos tiempos.
