A Kid's Oath!


(composed on Universal children's day-2011)

I'm a lovely kid of my small house
With sprightly, sparkling eyes...
Holding my computer's mouse
aspire to shine and rise...

With extra care i take my food
And play my games, but then...
i get scared of Mamma's mood
When someone takes my pen...

When Papa says, 'you'll have to work',
I keep on studying books...
When Mamma says, 'it's time for rest'
I pass her grateful looks...

I'm fond of juicy, chocolate creams,
And want to be a Sultan...
My glittering eyes are rich with dreams
I see for Pakistan....

I love my lovely home and school,
And love my friends and teachers...
I'll guide and work and follow rules
And make my better future... :)

    You understand, Shahzia, what it is you wrote, and much of why you wrote it.
    I will primarily take away that which tends to confirm my own experience.
    It is, incidentally, far more than enough- and quite beautiful. (Report) Reply

    The kid who is still living in you is perhaps lost in the reminiscences of your long lost spring that quite hurriedly left you. Or else you are transporting yourself into the selves of many kids around you and are speaking for all of them. Also remember such kids want to live beyond this December and kindly don`t wish for their eternity or wait for their mere extinction.. This humility in a poet like has to be accoladed with all deserving praise. Long live overgrown poet prodigy Shahzia. (Report) Reply

    The child is the innocent one, but he/she has to grow up once. And most people do not became a Sultan. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
