What happened to hopscotch?

Inspired by the current state of our public school system,

Written by Kim Tompkins, owner of Three Sisters Herbals.

 

What happened to hopscotch?

There was rolling skating in the street.
Rainy days spent making mud pies. 
And hopscotch. 
Oh, how I loved hopscotch.
Bright and colorful squares carefully drawn on broken sidewalks. 
And just the right stone. 
Ponytails bouncing, sun shining down on our innocent fun. 
What happened to hopscotch?

Today’s lockdown drills and mass shootings. 
There is fear and darkness. 
Words you can not say. 
Thoughts you’re afraid to even think. 
Anger, rage, self-hatred and unjustified loathing of others. 
Kids learn to escape schools during a shooting. 
And the sun still shines. 
Ponytails bouncing as they run. 
Innocence... there is none.

What happened to hopscotch?

 

 

Peace,

Kim
