When I was a Kid


I remember

When I was a kid

I ran around

And always hid.

When I found something

Unusual or extraordinary

I ran to every person around.


"Ma, Look at what I found"

She looks at me

With a wonderful smile

And gives a gentle hug


"Pa, look at what I found"

He looks at it

With skeptism

But gives him me a pat on the head.


"My brother, look at what I found"

He looks at me, then it

Then he looks away

Continuing with his activities.


"Jane, look at what I found"

The doll gives me a blank look

Then I nod my head, as if I understood

"Oh I see,

Everyone else knows about it but me"
