Cuddling a Teddy Bear

Cuddling a teddy bear
Roosevelt on adoptions 
Of the Corinthians 


When I was a child
So long, so far gone
In memories lane
Where mango trees, waited for my climb


I talked like a child
Alphabets and fantasies; happy ever afters
Nursery rhymes, and pica poo, babe dolls
G.I Joe's; cow boys and Indians


I thought like a child
To fly in shuttles to space and beyond
Star trek, and imaginary friends 
Obi-wan kenobi to the empire strikes back


I reasoned like a child. 
Candies that grow from trees
Holidays with schools out, yepeee
Ice cream vans are Santa's in summer


When I became a man
Tax and shelter, work to be paid
Debt to avoid, life is too short
Time on fly bys, time flies fast


I put childish ways behind me.
A few times burnt on complicated emotions
Reflective of life in lessons
Resolutions in lessons learnt


When I was a child
 I thought like a child

1 Corinthians 13:11
