A Simpler Time
The heart yearns for the simpler time.
An era where a smile between two
while walking, holding hands was love.
Words and thoughts have complicated
so much in each other's minds.
Over thinking actions by each other.
When during a simpler time.
what you did is what you meant.
Relationships are constantly questioned.
Mistrust seems to be the main feeling
due to people of the past with bad intentions.
There was a time when motives were transparent.
Those were the days of simpler times
when a hand was given for help.
The world is stressed and broken.
Air is full of anger and pretend
there was a time when
this did not exist or thought of.
A smile was natural and not forced.
That was a simpler time,
A time we all dream of.
