A Child's World

Welcome to my world
Some say it's a simple place
Well that may be so
But at least, there's always a smile on my face

Welcome to my world
It's a world full of joy
It's a world full of love
The world to me now is just one big toy

If ever you're feeling low
If ever you have no place to go
I'll always welcome you to my world
That's something you should know

Welcome to my world
It's a world free of hate
It's a world free of wars
So please don't hesitate
To come and visit my world

    Your world sounds like a great place to visit (or to live) !

    I have five poems, but they are not activated yet. Why does it take so long for a new poet?
    Some of them were posted three days ago!

    Is the child's world this simple? ? Yes, I may want to live a idealistic world of yours, during my rebirth...Thank you for sharing such a concept of child's world, which they forget every twenty minutes when they are below three years old...That is the reason they repeatedly do the same thing, though we warn them many times...

    The children's world is full of innocence and happiness and this is a poem showing the full thoughts of a childhood and welcoming the child's world and it is highly appreciated in all respects.

    Great poem but quite untrue... unless you're only considering those four and younger. Children can be naive but today's children are exposed to the real world very early and are maturing fast.

    Like the message, even if the poem lacks depth.

    I would definitely come to your world, because I am tired of living in this world where there's hateful, where i live my life in fear, i would come to your world to be blessed, and to live without fear. I am in love with your poem..

    There isn't a day of late that Ive not felt the wish to go back to my childhood world. I admire the strength of simplicity and its unending reach achieved in your poem. -Baru Gobira
