I am hereby officially tendering
my resignation as an adult. I have
decided I would like to accept the
responsibilities of an 8 year-old again.

I want to go to McDonald's and think
that it's a four star restaurant.

I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud
puddle and make a sidewalk with rocks.

I want to think M&Ms are better than
money because you can eat them.

I want to lie under a big oak tree and
run a lemonade stand with my friends on
a hot summer's day.

I want to return to a time when life was
simple; When all you knew were colors,
multiplication tables, and nursery
rhymes, but that didn't bother you,
because you didn't know what you
didn't know and you didn't care.

All you knew was to be happy because you were blissfully unaware of
all the things that should make you
worried or upset.

I want to think the world is fair.
That everyone is honest and good.

I want to believe that anything is
possible. I want to be oblivious
to the complexities of life and be
overly excited by the little things

I want to live simple again. I
don't want my day to consist of
computer crashes, mountains of paperwork,
depressing news, how to survive more days
in the month than there is money in the
bank, doctor bills, gossip, illness,
and loss of loved ones.

I want to believe in the power of
smiles, hugs, a kind word, truth,
justice, peace, dreams, the imagination,
mankind, and making angels in the snow.

So . . . here's my checkbook
and my car-keys, my credit card bills
and my RRSP statements. I am officially
resigning from adulthood.

I loved your poem, it was very touching.
It really took me back to some of my happy childhood memories.

Re: Resignation

Di, Olivia, Kyle and all else--

I would love to claim this as my own, but unfortunately it is not...I do not know whose it is, it came to me by email. I just loved it and thought everyone here would appreciate it.

<IMG SRC=""> I did

Re: Resignation

Hey Catriona,

Its a good poem and it sounds like it would be great...but..I did that for the complete year of 1995 and into the first three months of 1996 and it has taken me up to now to straighten out everthing that got screwed up.
I lost my good credit rating and got sued by a credit card co. But I understand where your coming from. Take care..
