Nostalgia

The same steps,
and clatter
but
someone else’s stomping feet.

The same class
and teachers
but
someone else sat in the seat.

The same foibles
and mischiefs
but
of someone else’s cheek.

The same fears
and hope
but
not the same dreams.

I’d walked back in time
and yet,
it wasn’t the same
as it seemed.

This post is inspired by my recent visit to school It was a beautiful day and a memorable experience, but…for all it’s perks, there was a tinge of saddness that I’d outlived my time there.
