The Coming of Age

There was a time, before this time, when time was held with love

When age and time had meaning and were often spoken of

Kids were kids and came of age when the age was meant to be

Hidden from life’s harshness and base reality

There was a time when adult rating meant only adults would see the slime

Children were free to laugh, play tag outside and learn by rote and rhyme

I miss the time when pornography was hidden from innocent eyes

When the touch of remote control or a computer invited demise

I miss the time when TV was meant for family time

When the shows were “clean” and were always “family” before nine

I remember when we didn’t sit with our own lap top each on his own

When family games were nightly and we weren’t on the internet like a drone

In closing – 2013 is a time that has brought us of age far too soon

To a reality of a jaded world instead of God[protected in our childhood cocoon

  3. I like the sentiment in the poem, but I’m wondering if your meant to have the word “not” in this verse, “I miss the time when pornography was not hidden from innocent eyes”

    • Thanks so much Roberta. After such a difficult time with my health over the summer and early fall, I am finally feeling better and am actually back to writing a lot.

      I have not been posting as I am working on a women’s devotional that I pray will bring value to some who have suffered as I did for so long with depression.

      I pray that you are well and hopefully I will be able to make time to be online again sooner than later. I really want to focus on this project until at least the first part of it is done.
