The Good Old Days

The Good Old Days

The dying breed of the characteristics of integrity is appearing to be obsolete. The way we live our lives nowadays is so foreign from yester years.  It used to be that your word was bond, and “yes” was “yes” and “no” meant “no”.  I remember when our elderly were honored, and we looked out for

The dying breed of the characteristics of integrity is appearing to be obsolete. The way we live our lives nowadays is so foreign from yester years.  It used to be that your word was bond, and “yes” was “yes” and “no” meant “no”.  I remember when our elderly were honored, and we looked out for the neighborhood villagers, but oh how times have changed.  The younger generation believes they exceed the wisdom of old, and we’ve incorporated a system to help catapult their beliefs.

No longer does a village help raise a child, but a system of cracks and frailties govern the homes.  Oh! How I miss those days of old. Teaching a child to become responsible and hard work achieved through perseverance and determination is a joke nowadays.

Oh good old days, please come back!  Good ole lemonade stand I miss you so much.  Home cooked meals- I long for your presence and family gatherings- oh you’re so missed.

“Hurry! Quick! Instant!”, the house household screams.  No longer does an encyclopedia exist, but it’s an archive, because Google is quick and does not require brain time.  Good old days of reading a book that you picked up from the local library are a joke, because technology puts a book at your fingertips.

Research and development they say? What’s that! I can get my iPhone to get me going. “HaHa!” The youth responds because surely we’re Stone Age.

The good old days I need you now, come take me back.  I never cherished your presence, but I now I see your worth. Forgive me and let’s go back to how things once were.
