We stopped...

We stopped...

A Poem by Lacy Dawn

 We stopped watching cartoons because we knew they weren't real..

 We stopped looking under our beds for monsters, because we knew the monsters are inside us..

 We stopped falling in love because we knew it would lead to heart breaks..

 We stopped all of this because, there was a point to stop..

Very profound write, Lacy, depicting how through the process of being adults
we have no choice but to stop
playing "pretend" and face life's harsh reality. though brief this poem speaks volumes.
(i still watch Ren and Stimpy though @ times) :) -- thanks for sharing and pen on!

Brief, but very true. The second line is deep, while the 3 lines in general show a person growing up; nicely put

Sad to say stopping is a cold reality of life. But this is a refreshing read. Good job.

True statements. I wish we didn't have to stop :)

i never stopped watching cartoons , i'm still afraid of the dark but not because i'm afraid of monsters , and i never stopped falling in love , because is better to have loved and lost than not loved at all . its what makes us wise in the very end of our life
