Take me back to the candy shop

Take me back to the candy shop

There was a candy shop.

Sour, sweet, you name it all.

A heaven for me

When I was little.


Sour candies were the infamous ones

Tricked into eating one.

I remember its wrapper,

Greenish with orange sprinkles.


Sour turned into bitter,

Bitter into sweet.

Wasn’t that patience to wait,

Threw it in the first bite.


Flip side of the story.

Sour are the moments,

Bitter are the days,

Sweet now remains nostalgic.


Can’t even throw it away,

Holding on to its twinkling wrappers.

How foolish of me to think,

I could gulp it all down.


Crazy how a candy was,

Preparing me for the future.

Take me back to the candy shop,

Will trade back the sour with the sweet ones.
