I miss the days
When heavy was light,
And in your face
Was just as good as out of sight.

I miss the days
When bad was good,
And dynamite
Never hurt nobody.

Like back in the days when
A dime was really worth a quarter,
And penny candies
Wasn’t simply an old mans dream.

When talkin trash
Was good clean fun,
When black was strength
Without a gun.

I miss the days
When digging something,
Never required shovels
And trinkets.

Back when hand shakes
Lasted all day it seemed,
OUR way showing and
Knowing we had surely made it home.

How about the days when entire neighborhoods
Took the time to raise one child.
And when street lights told time
Better than watches.

I sure miss the good old days
Days that were tried and true
Days that were filled with the real
And less reality!

A realist poem

Author: Steamy Trails Publishing

Steamy Trails Publishing began in 2010 with two girls that had a dream to publish people that wanted to get their books out, but didn’t have the large amounts of cash that most publishing companies were charging. To cut costs for our clients, it took a LOT of work, but together we got the job done. Now that Steamy Trails Publishing is solely ran by Katrina Gurl, and the mission still is to provide a professional and proficient publishing service that will produce marketable literary work for all. Steamy Trails Publishing believes that it is your “write” to live your literary dreams and our purpose is to serve you well with quality and respect. Anyone can put words on paper and call it a book, but a quality book represents you and your vision. Steamy Trails Publishing helps you represent yourself in the best light that you deserve.
