Remember when we were young and carefree,
when we don't care much about
what's going on around us.
Those times brought a lot of fun and enjoyment,
and the memories are lingering every time.
We knew so little about life,
and the only thing we knew was
it was great to be young
with all the fun in the world.
We were always playing,
and we could never get enough of that
even if we play the whole day and night.
We couldn't get enough of the laughter
and the friendships with every kid
in school and the neighborhood.
So many things going on
around the world already that time,
but we were never bothered.
We just didn't care.
We were too young to care maybe.
Our lives then were all about playing around,
being free to do anything.
And it was all happiness altogether -
no dull moments to remember.
There were days when we got sick,
but we got back very soon again
so as not to miss our friends' company.
There were times when
we got scolded by our families and teachers too,
but we just let it pass through our ears.
(I always did that actually).
It was disrespectful to them,
but i did it gladly.
It was just inconsiderate and naughty of me,
never had a heart to do good.
I blame it on my age
where wisdom was not a thing to me -
it was not my concern.
I just did my own thing,
and that was it.
I never cared if that was wrong or not.
And even if someone told me it was unright,
i kept on doing it over and over.
That was how i lived
for so many years in my childhood.
And so were many of my friends.
I was never alone in that.
And i was glad i got company.
Make Friends, Make No Enemies
My friends are not too many,
and i'm loving them all.
And some of them are like family already.
Not seeing them on a daily
or even monthly basis,
but every time we see,
we got back to where we left off.
It was like that the whole time.
Our friendship is just too strong
to be forgotten or ignored.
We bonded right away,
we laughed and we talked and talked
so much that time is no more.
We hung out as if
we were still in high school,
ignoring the entire world the whole time.
And if possible,
we could make some loud
and carefree revelry wherever we may be.
That would be bothersome a little
given we were already nearing
our 40 years on earth,
but it was all okay,
and it was all for making up lost moments.
It sounded childish or immature,
but we had to be like that
sometimes to keep the years from adding.
It's not that we didn't want to grow old,
or we were not mature enough.
It's just our way of
doing things our own way,
and it was all about friendship
that has been there for very long time.
Some may not understand it all,
or some may find it weird
for late 30-something guys
to act that way,
but we didn't care at all.
We were never bothered
for we already expected some to feel that way.
We were all just reliving the moments
of childhood when we were so free
without any worries at all.
