Childhood Memories

Describes how my childhood was...I am learning to remember; The little crayons of my childhood.

I am learning to remember,
The little crayons of my childhood.
The colorful moods,
And the smiling faces.
The sun rising from the east,
And setting in my chest.
The dirty walls in my room,
From my pencil screeching and art.
These are just a few pieces,
Of childhood memories.

I am learning to forget.
The screams from my brother,
When he was scared out of sleep,
Nightmares that would not leave,
The tears and the fear,
Of sickness and pain,
Or of hunger.
These are just a few pieces,
Of childhood memories.
