I wish I could be six again

I wish I could be six again so I could…

Devastate all that harm that growing up had thrown in my way
and bring back my innocence 
when the world was not the complicated Gossamer
with knots
more than the thread's length
but a
a fairy tale spun in colors.

when male and female
was just a gender.
and religion was no big deal.

I want to Plummet
back into the joy of childhood,
the age of innocence
and miss out
all that ugliness
that came as part of
growing up.

I wish I could be six again...
so I can see the world
with rose tinted lens
with honesty and purity
except when it comes to..
who will eat the cherry on the top of cake icing.
