Wednesday Wiseness: Journey from simple to not-so-simple

Life is a lot of things when you are a child.

Happiness is an ice cream cone.

Pain is a bruised knee.

Sadness is when a friend ignores you in school.

Fear is the dark of the night.

Hope is just a fancy word.

Adventure is rescuing a lost puppy.

Love is a mother’s cuddle, a father’s hug.

Loss is a misplaced toy.

Life is also a lot of things when you are an adult.

Happiness is an endless search. Even though you now own an ice-cream shop.

Pain is a bruised heart.

Sadness is when you can’t remember the last time you spoke to a friend

Fear is the dark of your mind.

Hope is everything.

Adventure is watching a rescue mission on television.

Love is family. And money.

Loss is a misplaced soul.


 

Daily Prompt:

Adult Visions : As a kid, you must have imagined what it was like to be an adult. Now that youโ€™re a grownup (or becoming one), how far off was your idea of adult life?

        I liked the idea of rambling once in a blue moon but seeing how ppl who “have a long way to go” write I’m keeping my ramblings to myself. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    See, Nida! You have a beautiful way of saying things. I really like the contrast between a child’s concrete version of these experiences and an adult’s deeply internal ones. Lovely post:0)
