Before i had my innocence thrown
Between the laps of women '

Before i knew that a red rose can
Win a lady's heart.

Back when my heart has no
Wings yet it flys.

What is more cherishable than the
Smiles on my mother's lips when

I like this but plan to read it again another day and leave more comment then, or send a message. I have some suggestions; I’ll leave one here. “Dancing under the rain was always Inspiring than the voice of my teachers.” …………..put “more” between “always” and “inspiring”. I can …………………………………………………………understand, if I think of some of MY teachers I guess! favorite lines: “I had a childhood i wish i could Taste again..” …………………………yes! a “taste” would be nice now and then, but I wouldn’t go back if it meant I’d have to relive all my life until now; too much was not nearly as good as childhood! ! ! armpits? they must do something different with women in Nigeria! thanks for sharing. bri :)

So beautiful with your fresh voice as the pure innocence of your lines take childhood as a memory of a mystery called paradise!
