Candyland



Candyland

This was a game

A game that 

Is pointless to me now

But when I was younger

It was my favorite

To me now it is a waste of time

But 

When I was a young kid

There was time

But it didnt need to be wasted 

I could just move that gingerbread man 

Around the board for an hour 

Without having to worry about 

Unfinished schoolwork

Texting friends back 

Or responsibilities 

It was just a fun game

But now I am left with 

Memories

Happy ones

That have me missing that

Slower 

Simpler

Part of my life.
