How Wonderful Are Children - Poem by none .....

How wonderful are children!
How innocent their little eyes, yet untainted
Yet free from judgments & comparisons of world
The children of god
The man of world
They know nothing of each other
Together, yet living in two different world
The world of child is full of joy
Can't you see, see in their little eyes
Feel their divine presence
Oh its an utter downfall of a man
Fall of every child into manhood
Joy of innocence slowly consumed
By the lust of maturity
Pretty little faces turning into ugly disguises
Ah! While entire existence in the eyes of a child
Is his playground, garden of god,
he plays, safe of all blames
He is excused, even cherished for his stupid mistakes
And the same lovely gestures are forbidden
As he grows older
Even replaced by fear of what other says,
followed by pretension
When the child in him is suppressed
by an invisible tension
Then he is in path of being the same victim
Like the ones of adults around him
Hopelessly engaged in cultural conditioning
Taught by their grow-ups
Passing down of same mistakes in many versions
Day after day, remembering, repeating
When one day, he accepts them to be normal
Then the child in him dies
Wild & playful he was, now becomes formal
Now he's given many kinds of certificates
, proves of a child being corrupted into a man
& as the saddest irony, he starts to be convinced
Of the illusion, completely forgets the real
A child of those early years
Where has he gone?
Somebody find him
He is the one, needed here
amongst the societies of grown-ups
He is the one, from who every one of us has to learn
For a child's lessons are subtle messages of god
The sweet melody from the temple of god
Harass not him at all
Leave him in his own will
Rather, learn if you can
From his innocence, his holy grace
Ah! Only if each one of us could dare to be that humble
We would unite in heart, merge in love
Then we may know, the seekers of paradise
That the paradise was never lost
