Can I be a child?

Can I be a child?
Now the entire world is in crises.
People are hungry.
They are thirsty too.
Violence & quarrel have been the normal exercise in the society.
On the other hand the children’s world is different from the rest of the world.
There is no agony.
Reign of joy always lives in children’s world.
They clap like butter flies.
They glow like the crescent moon.
They laugh like a guitar.
They play joyously.
Innocence plays always on their faces.
They are notorious too.
Dreams are their fellow friends.
Mother plays a vital role in their smile.
Father makes them healthy, wealthy & wise.
Can I be a child?

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
