Missing Childhood - Poem by Sourav Khatua

Sometimes time takes a step
Wants us to face the life's prep
Disturbs the present phase of life
To makes us act as sharp as knife
Bounds to leave those childhood games
Making and calling with funny names
Missing those cute talkings ever said
Competing selflessly to move ahead
Tensions for scoring highest marks
Or ready to face dad's word sharks
Catching those lovely and pure insults
Searching companion for better consults
Never ending process to learn and act
And trying in evey field your own impact

Topic(s) of this poem: childhood , memories, missing

    I would not want to be taken back to my childhood but certainly liked the non technical side 40 years ago and the fun of playing outside from dusk to dawn.
    No one smells the roses any more, too busy!
    Thank You

    It really has come across in your poem how much you miss those childhood years. Makes me yearn for mines. Thank you very much for giving me a memorable trip in the past. Congratulation for such a good write. And it's recognition. (Report) Reply

    Dwelling on childhood is as enterprising as self-starting.........there are many old scenes of childhood which time can never erase........deserves P.O.D...............thanks for sharing (Report) Reply

    Missing one's childhood in the later phases of life is a reality but this transition is something inevitable and essential. This transition ensures that the person concerned grows into a full fledged man. Thanks.

    I do believe that we can learn so much in our childhood that should be kept with us as we age so we can become better humans. Thanks for sharing your poem and congratulations on poem of the day! (Report) Reply
