As you are now, so once was I…

Google Images: '70's Teens

I remember the days were longer then—
the skies bluer; the load lighter;
we held the future in our fingertips.
That was long ago,
    when time ran slow…

Now we’re status quo,
    go with the flow—
tripping along a perpetual loop
trying to eke out a living —
wondering where our innocence went.

I still can recall
    how we were going to change the world.
