Crying for candies,

getting it stuck to my hair,

dropping it on the ground,

washing the dirt off,

popping it back in the mouth,

hiding it under the pillow,

wake up and check if it is still there,

fighting with siblings if not,

quietened by promises.

I want to be a kid again.

Ashamed to buy a candy for myself,

guilty after eating one,

stared at if seen licking a lollipop,

unsanitary if dropped,

compelled to share the last one.

Can I be a kid again?
