Veteran Poet - 1,837 Points (Dogon Kurmi)


Once in a while
let's be kids
let's vacate the adult jungle
and visit the children fair
once in a while
take off your shoes
render the earth a kiss from your bare feet
hop on the sand
merry with the flowers
bless the rain with a dance
ease the crown from your head
the wind long to play with your hair
give wings to your bothering issues
permit them a flight to hell
then come be a kid

once in a while
let's be kids
faking no feeling
forgiving the wrongs so the rights may survive
wearing smiles coated with slight playful wiles
laughter, singing and noise of glees
put a pause to the day's occupation - this is children hour
once in a while
the sun and the moon put off their shine to meet and play
pausing all years' vision of the busy earth
just as same, roll up your sleeve
take off your shoes
enter the children fair
this is how we do not die.
