Rewind

Let me be a child today.

I need a bucket
full of innocence
and
desperation
to walk ahead,
having no doubts..

where I'm heading to,
and where should I stop.

Allow me, to be a child today.

Deprive me of the wisdom
of worldly manners
and quickly,
like a snap
break this reality into shards.

Yes, I'm a child today.
Tell the world,
I'll get a tomorrow
to grow up
and to talk mature,

the way it wants.

Or if tomorrow doesn't
show up
this happy child,
would be glad
to die
young.

  1. Your words relive my desire of wanting to go back to my childhood and be a child forever. A child's innocence is truly as precious as a diamond. ♡

  2. Really nice...Guruji, Sri Sri Ravishankarji always says that one should be 'child-like'..seeking joys in simple things without much expectations is the key to happiness :)

    Loved it!

  5. The childhood is the time we miss most after growing up! We still need to keep that child in us alive for rest of the lives to enjoy the world around us. Nice thoughts Vinati:)

    1. Of course! :)
      But the only problem is that it hard to find people who would let us be a child.
