Life Around Fire - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

Kept away, while being a child, when attracted to flames,
Curiosity amplified to touch get feel; attempts went futile.
As I grew, realized, wise were my parents who kept me aside.
My tender skin could have hardly endured the burning fire.
Time changed so the mind and likings,
At young age my outlook transformed, beauty beguiled
Wise were those who counsel to keep away from
Enquiring eyes, intimidating mind and piercing figure
Didn't realize, it was the same fire,
Boiling blood anesthetized my mind and
eventually lost paramount youth life.
Towards fade-end fruits (Children) enchant
Reminding me of what I went through
When they followed the same pattern,
I realized, Life is around fire.

    What a great write it is! So truely and nicely depicted about the fire around us. The favourite lines are .... Wise were those who counsel to keep away from
    Enquiring eyes, intimidating mind and piercing figure
    Didn't realize, it was the same fire,
    Boiling blood anesthetized my mind and
    eventually lost paramount youth life. Thanks for sharing......10
