When I Was Young

Nov 8, 2014


I was reminiscing about when I was young A child of ten who had loads of fun In a safe environment playing with my toy gun A child of eight who enjoyed the sun I used to climb trees in my garden Left to play without a worry of strange men I would play along […]

The Hanging Man

Sep 21, 2013
