Oh my goodness, I could relate to this so well, I almost feel sad... yeah, I miss the good old days when I could just sit in front of the television and watch cartoons... ehm, Catdog, Little Lulu, Ahh! Real Monsters... man, thinking about them makes me sad now.

What a wonderful poem. It's what makes poetry cool, and what makes me wish I could write it. :)

Tell me about it!

Then you have those of us who were forced to grow up faster than we were ready for, and it really makes the yearning for "the good ole days" come out.

Nice concept for a poem! Good work.

This is so true. People spend so much time wishing they were some different age, older, younger, whatever. And then they wish to relive what they didn't appreciate. I especially like the last thought, that we should live life to the fullest because life could end at any time. A really good poem. And you're a really great poet. Keep writing and I'll keep reading.

I like your style and the overall poem itself. I can relate like so many others on the subject matter. Be sure to post poems more offend so I can read them because I'm sure they're just as good!

Isn't that so true, though? We spend our youth wanting to grow up and our old age wanting to go back. I wish there were a magic formula for making you appreciate it while you've got it.

Ah, well. Nice poem. I especially like the last two lines - something about the "Southern charm" ring gives it more impact.
