Remember when we were but children, running around in the park, and playing on the playground?

Ah, the days when we knew no sorrow or suffering

Those days when Father used to take us to the circus

To watch animal trainers perform daredevil stunts

The clowns were the best, I always thought

Clowns on unicycles

And the birthday parties each year, with many people and many presents

I miss those days so much

Now everything has changed

We’ve grown so much older

You think of boys and makeup and gossip

And I face inner turmoil many days out of the year

But oh, if only we could trace back the steps of Father Time

And relive those blessed days of innocence

Athena and Ivan

We wrote this for our sister….several years ago. she was 13 at the time I think…..the inner turmoil refers to our misdiagnosis of bipolar disorder…we might blog about that later. It’s a very hard thing to think about, still, seven years after it all started, and three years after freeing ourselves from the medications.
