How did we end up so cynical?
When did we get so blasé?
Where did the wonder in everything go?
Who chased the excitement away?
The years pass by us so quickly
And with them our sense of surprise
A shame we lose the perspective of
The world through a little ones eyes
They have no pretence or conditioning
They’re Innocent, trusting and free
There’s no failure only feedback
Just the way it really should be
If we stop taking our lives for granted
And fearing what we can’t control
We could reconnect with our inner child
And rejuvenate body and soul
