I remember way back when

The air and waters were crystal clear.

When music had meaning.

When art was beautiful.

When the front page carried good news.

When everyone got along.

When children went outside to play.

When money wasn't an issue.

When you could leave your doors unlocked.

When there was no "Endangered Species" list.

When there were no politics.

When races coexisted peacefully.

When there was no need for new weaponry.

When life was enjoyable.

When the simple things were sweet.

When work never involved papers.

When love was forever.

When "Global Warming" was just two separate words.

When comedy was funny.

When movies were for the whole family.

When fun was clean.

When you knew your neighbor.

When honesty came naturally.

When people were different and were accepted for it.

When children lived with both parents.

When people cared.

When you went to school to learn.

When games never involved controllers.

When "I love you" was a sacred phrase.

When religion was never a bad thing.

When people had morals.

But then I woke up.

Unfortunately, the human race, it seems, will far outlast that of our humble Earth. We're constantly changing, evolving, and moving on to new, 'better' methods of survival. Much like bacteria. There is little sacred to this race anymore.

It's not us that I'm worried about. It's everything else besides the human virus that's in peril.

I already resent being part of this bacterial race, so I don't fear the end.

Its that last phrase that makes this for what it was, and pops the bubble at the same time. There really never WAS that time--in small pocket perhaps, but the rest--there's never been a human age without war. Just a dream.

It makes me think of that song "I dreamed a dream of times gone by, apart from this Hell I'm living."
....Your's is a dreamed shared by many, I'm afraid.
*claps hands* Bravo, as usual
