When I was a child
I was free and wild

I’d run for hours
Play and dance with power

Carefree and inspired
I’d create by the fire

A world of joy and ecstasy.

Dreaming large
Nothing was too hard

An endless stream
Of “I can” and “Let’s Dream!”

A ball of energy
Bouncing high, no lethargy

Swift creations were born
From dusk to dawn.

When I was a child
I was free and wild
Let me be so again
I’m done with mild.
