I was going through an old journal of 2013 then I saw a poem inspired by kids I taught during a six months strike that year.

                    *   *   *   *   *   *

When I look into their eyes;
My heart melts like an ice;
I love their spirit that lack no dice;
Young at heart with peaceful look with no lies;
Generous ones who doesn’t mind sharing their fries;
I’ll always want to be young forever.

I miss those days of total freedom;
From the worries I deal with now with wisdom;
Even the Bible says being like them;
Is the only way to the kingdom;
When you’re focused as a child you’ll be the earldom;
Who can save the masses from martyrdom;
I’ll always want to be young forever.
