Forty Three Years Displeasure😞

Forty Three Years Displeasure😞

In the blink of my childhood eye
Forty three years has passed me by
School days I played without a thought
How my life would pan out after I was  taught

Endlessly, carelessly soldiering on
Little did I realise, I was not to know
Attending the classes till my work was done
How speedily my bygone days would go

Reminiscing from my days at school
I wished my life to go fast
How slowly & tiresome it seemed so cruel
Now those days of learning are past

Gone are the days when time lapsed so slow
My school days are but a treasure
Sepia photographs with faces I know
Forty three years is displeasure

nice piece...time flies before you even know it.

soldiering and reminiscing - you may want to correct...(I'm a spelling bore).

Hello Jill...

No joke!

School years seemed to go much slower...

Decades sure fly as we get older...

I remember when I thought how long it would take me to be 70...

I was very deceived as a kid...

Not even 20 years already and I will be there if all goes well...

Geez I remember when it was 7 Decades and it doesn't really feel that long ago...

Time it's a strange thing...

Great write!

Thank you for sharing...

Hugs...
