What Do We Need…… - Poem by Abhijit Surve
Innocence itself, is a marvelous thing...
It comes to us in our life's early spring..
then what do we gain, when innocence is lost..? ?
Why does our life experience, comes at this cost..? ?
Purity of heart is a gift of joy..
Happiness resides in every young girl and boy..
Why is it that only, children see life differently..? ?
Is it cause they are free of guilt completely..? ?
Good memories are made of only when we were young..
together we enjoyed, tunes of life that we sung..
Where did that circle of friends disappear like a ghost..? ?
Why stand alone, facing nightmares we feared the most..? ?
We took every stride, with as much pride..
We shared every feeling, no emotion did we hide..
Why is our heart now a slave and our mind rules..? ?
Are dreams here unreal and for unguided fools..? ?
The world was always a better place to live..
We shared our belongings, we loved to give..
Why today we seek for more then we need..? ?
Is it not because, we live in greed..? ?
Why act in a role which we are not destined to play..
Why utter the words we never meant to say..
Why fight to gain everything that we touch..? ?
Why does winning always matter so much..? ?
Ask your life questions, watch what difference it makes..
find better answers, no matter how much time it takes..
Innocence is there deep in you, open your heart and see..
Ask yourself a question 'Is all this worth, more then me..? ? '
