I was born
Into a world fresh faced and open hearted.
I had no expectations.
All I knew was who I am
And what I was.
I had only my two hands and my two feet
For which to create and move on.
Without fear
I did not hesitate.
If I were to wander
I found my way
Back to myself.
I always came back
To you.
I was

 I love the innocence of  the idea of this poem! I've thought these same exact thoughts in my mind before; you brought them to life.This line is especially amazing, "For which to create and move on". (: P.S.- Thanks for checking out my work. --indiewriter<3

I think this poem is quite unique. It's though-provoking, yet simple. Everyone can relate. Great job.

I love this. It touches on something not too many people mention at all. The innocence of childhood is interesting. I like how it is untainted by modern thought or society. It is so simple. 4 stars.
