"There Was a Time"

Once
upon a time
  there was a
time
of fairie tale reality. 
Of cuddly toys and noisy things
that came to life at will.
How uncomplicated
was the game of living then.
The earth's circumference
was the distance around a room.
Warm,
 outstretched arms were our resting stops.
How easy then
we were to please.
How small our wants,
how few our needs. 
So sheltered we were then,
 with human walls around us,
to ward off evil, pain, and sorrow.
But we outgrew our defenses

and chose to climb,
 
to leave behind the fairie tale security.
How foolish 
we
 became.
