At least once in a persons childhood, he or she would play hide and seek. No matter what culture or status in life, it is one game everybody loves to play. Just for an hour or so, I joined in to play hide and seek with my younger brothers and their two friends. It made me forget I am twelve years old. I felt like I was seven again! Sometimes things like these is all I need to remind myself that I’m still a kid. I know many tweens just like me who want to leave behind being a child. What’s the rush? I know I’ll be an adult soon enough, so enjoying youth is really important while I still can.
Just a simple game like that had me laughing on the floor with some of the smartest hiding spots that I have ever come across. It was funny noticing that my brother Renzo would always count a little too fast and we would always argue about it. Just simple things can make you remember you are young and there is no need to grow up too fast.
Remember, we can never get back the days that passed, we can only look forward to what is ahead.
