"Untold" - An original poem

Hello darlings! Here is an original poem written by GL reader Kayla E. Take a peek and let us know what you think in the comments below. 


What they never tell you

is that life doesn’t stop

long enough for you

to sit and see

They never remind you

to hold onto the rare moments

that taste like childhood

with a sweet hint of nostalgia

They never remind you

to slowly inhale the raw smell

of your mother’s garden,

or notice the tickle of the grass

on your bare legs

They never remind you

to memorize the number of freckles

on your best friends nose,

or the way she sings every verb

They never remind you to

trace the walls

of your childhood bedroom,

or document your days through diaries

They never remind you

to hug every person you meet, or

ask the questions that scare you

(They) never tell you

because they are fooled

into thinking these things (lose value)
