A Race Of Newer Times - Poem by M.D Dinesh Nair

I make a step forward
But I understand I am on a road that is newly laid!
When I look at those going in front of me
I see a running child`s smiling face
And he says, 'Uncle, times have changed'.

I begin to ponder over the times that have changed
But my thoughts too make a step twice forward.
When I search for the imp who precedes me
I see two toddlers still preceding him
And they shout at him, ' Brother, times have changed yet again'.
