Childhood


Turning back the pages of my life,
I realize childhood was the best moment.
Living each moment without the fear of tomorrow,
Fulfilling wishes through the powerful weapon
Every child has: crying

Wish I could grow up,
Was one among them
Which I eventually achieved.
But now I wish
I shouldn’t have wished it.

In a battle that lasted for 7 years,
My childhood lost to adulthood
By destroying my powerful weapon.
Or I could have used it
To get my childhood back.

Because, turning back the pages of my life,
I realize childhood was the best moment.
Living each moment without the fear of tomorrow,
Fulfilling wishes through the powerful weapon
Which I have lost forever

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
