It may be summer, but it doesn't feel like it.

Between my summer class, work, helping around the house, and keeping my room (mostly) clean, I have no time for things I like to do.

Such as reading, and writing, and drawing, and just hanging out with friends and sisters. There's always Something Else I should be doing.

When will summer be like it used to be, when I was a kid? When I had no cares besides sleeping late, reading, and playing outside? Are those days gone for good?

I hope not. I sincerely hope not.

I want summer, to be Summer, as I remember it from Summers Past.

I'm with you on this one girl. Its crazy how life has caught up to us and what once used to be a time of relaxation is a time to get ahead so that the rest of the year isn't as stressful. But don't let the business of your summer pass you by without a little bit of fun. : )

I couldn't handle a free summer anymore, like I had when I was a kid. I need more structure, stuff to do, or I'd go nuts after a week.

As to your question about my poem, yes I wrote it, and yes you may post it crediting me as the author.
