think of the times

Pause
take a breath 
rewind. 

Take yourself back to simpler times. 
Back to before you knew
that life ain’t easy
before you were exposed to all the hate and ugliness 
this world holds. 
Take yourself back to simpler times. 
Back to before
you knew any better 
before you knew what it meant to be cold and lonely. 
Take yourself back to simpler times. 

When you feel
like you just can’t take anymore 
when life has beaten 
all the fight out of you,

Pause
take a breath 
rewind 
and take yourself back 
to simpler times.
