Innocence


Mamma, when will I grow tall like you
As now I am looked up by very few;
I wanna fit into Paapa's shoes
Now for me its very loose!

When shall I earn money
As now I hardly have few penny;
I want to grow up and work hard
And buy for myself a stylish car!

O mama! when will I grow up and have fun
As now I am only in class One!

These are the innocent lines put forth
by my six year old;
Unaware of the life's challenges
Lying in his fold!

O my dear, why are you in a haste to grow
As then there are many challenges that life will throw;
Enjoy your childhood my dear
As the only challenge u have to face now is the exam fear!

No, No, Mamma! I want to grow fast
Challenges, fears, are all things of the past!

No, my dear! One day when you grow
You will remember your Mamma's word though;
But now its time for you to do your homework
Oh no Mamma! this is what it really irks!

    Your six year old represents a class of innocents! Now they are blissfully ignorant of the hurdles lying ahead! Life would be harder for the coming generation than it is for us is a nagging thought for all the grown ups! A beautiful write Kavya! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
