Simple Times


But when were there simpler times? 

When did the clock flow at such a steady pace

As to assume or provide a comfortable living. 

When was there a day of laughter

From the ones who gave you life? 

Or a day free of argumentative behavior? 

When were those simpler times

That you struggle to recall? 

When did the sun shine in such a way 

That you felt as if all were good? 

When was their ever control?

When was there ever a simpler time?
