the vanishing childhood by asianrabbit the vanishing childhood by asianrabbit



Swing

Have we forgotten how to swing ourselves?
so often stuck in this digital world
our modern children are so familiar with buttons
a task so easily performed that they have forgotten what strengths are for
pity our future,
we have our foundations built upon sticky fingers and flimsy limps
admire the little ones whose next meals are questionable
yet still appreciating what little they have
for its real fun that they really know of
timeless fun that we do not know

The rather odd... somewhat uncomfortably shifty background exudes a very... appropriately eerie atmosphere.

I really like this.
