English Poetry

What a carefree life I had lived
I wish I was a little child again
That little world was so blissful
Growing up just seems insane

As siblings we fought & yet loved
I wish I was that child again
Innocence in the mind & heart
Seems to have gone down the drain

I thought I was getting smarter
But I want to be that child again
Growing up, an emotional roller-coaster
Watered down joys, with lots of pain

Childhood, a fountainhead of love
Let me be that little child again
Wealth & belongings I gathered
But in the end, what did I really gain?

I don’t want any big airplane
I just want my tattered toy train
Come summers, winter or the rain
I wish I was a little child again

      Everything seems a stress n strain at times as u grow up, n its frequency seems to increase. Yes v r all thankful to God for all his kindness, yet sometimes one slips. Thx n love u too.

    Yes. All of us long for the
    childhood with a hope in vain,
    Viju.

      Yes Ma’am, it is in vain, the hope, but i did feel like reliving some of the unabashed childhood moments, the freedom of action, not caring what others would think etc & trust me I cud relive maybe 5-10 % ofmy happiest days 🙂
