Daily Prompt: Golden Age
If you had to live forever as either a child, an adolescent,or an adult, which would you choose– and why?
I don’t think living forever is an option for me. If it happens by chance, even if I don’t want to. I’d prefer to live forever as a child.
There are countless reasons for my decision. When I recall my childhood there wasn’t a day in my life when I was unhappy. It was a perfect childhood in my mind.
I had my loving parents, I had the security every one needs and unbelievable siblings except one. You cannot beat this feeling.
My days were filled with school, play and delicious food my mother cooked. I wasn’t worried about going hungry, or lack of shelter, or shortage of people to play with, God the Almighty provided it for us.
It was like the old song, “where never was heard a discouraging word and the sky is not cloudy all day.”
It was not the case with adolescence, or adulthood. These two stages were encompassed with sorrow, fear, and everything else that my childhood did not confront me with.
Comparatively childhood was the best years for me!
