Down The Memory Lane


Here i am looking crimson sunset
Again as a joyful kid admired
Past the poles of anger and hatred
Sinking the sacks of hurried life
Hearing the lullabies sung by birds
And caress of the breeze blowing around

Making my lust for money and power
Merely dust of loneliness and trevor
Look at me now, not a child anymore
Who once walked with his mom
Along the sands of roaring seas,
And a blast of wind behind me

Those were the days of joy and fun
Running like an unleashed horse on run
Smiling at the people who looked at me
Caring and helping were then we
Run, fall, smile and run again
And run and run and run again

Away from the haunted memories of past
When i cried at night in dark
Seeing a face of love and care
In the glowing bedroom lamp
She was my mom, pure and true
Holding with care, once and for all

Alas! Lost the truth and joy
Over the years of treachery and crime
I don’t like the kids anymore
Who run with vigor and smile on face
Can again i be a child, an innocence
Who feels great when hugged with love

“Becoming a kid again in life
Is the one that can’t come true”
