Child Literacy

where is the place?
where is the space?
where does child literacy take place?
adults let make-believe world replace
the natural order of progress
trivialities filling up their lives
there is no harmony between parents
each one pursuing unfulfilled dreams
acknowledging self-importance
running after unending wants
suppressing nurturing relationships
honor and cherish each other, that's your priority
respecting yourself and others is your responsibility
child is copying all that you are showing
child is learning all what you are doing
child is exploring but you are restricting
don't you see?
won't you see?
sense of his discovery is sharpened
child needs to be guided and molded
screen people are his role models
he is lost in the world of cartoons
in this hectic world of ours
technology took over our lives
watching television, playing video games at tender age
would it drive child towards challenge?
unnatural, unsupervised energy intensified
boundary between child and adult severed
time to change your ways
time to change your ways
let's help child to embrace the world
let's take him to school to be acquainted
teachers and friends are guiding stars
be willing to abide by rules and regulations
schools teach parent through the child
how to navigate oneself for the greater good
inculcate in your child about your heritage
about good manners befitting his age
encourage him to share his knowledge
you are the shining star among those stars
child devotedly follows
whom he blindly trusts
listen to your child all the time
it is when you know you can define
the uncertainties, the confusing thoughts
presented displayed depicted by teachers and friends
diligently collected stored accumulated from others
unravel it to him. revel in it. it is fruitful
you are in this together. it is useful
it is when he is armed with information
he becomes a sharing and caring person
are you ready for this?
are you ready for this?
acknowledge the blissful wisdom coming your way
unheedingly together with reading and writing day by day
relating to others, respecting teachers and friends
talking about parents, family members and relatives
understanding the background of the basics
tell your child so he tells it well to others
through your child world comes to your house
through school experience
your child reveals the universe
reminding you what you nearly miss
when you neglect the world and focus
harping and dreaming about self-importance
it is time to tell your child
so he accepts the diversified world
so he thrives in abundance
my child, you are at the right nurturing place
my child, this is your comfortable space
repeat after me if you would
all the children of the world
I am the world
I am African
I am Asian
I am European
I am North American
I am South American

Topic(s) of this poem: child
The Art of Living celebrated its thirty five years in New Delhi on March 11,12,13,2016. I was one of the contestants in the Let Your Voice Be Heard competition which was held prior to the celebration. Contestants were given topics to choose from. I wrote a poem on Child Literacy because as a kindergarten teacher this topic is close to my heart.
