Innocence

Mamma, when will I grow tall like you
As now I am looked up by very few;
I wanna fit into Paapa's shoes
Now for me its very loose!

When shall I earn money
As now I hardly have few penny;
I want to grow up and work hard
And buy for myself a stylish car!

O mama! when will I grow up and have fun
As now I am only in class One!

These are the innocent lines put forth
by my six year old;
Unaware of the life's challenges
Lying in his fold!

O my dear, why are you in a haste to grow
As then there are many challenges that life will throw;
Enjoy your childhood my dear
As the only challenge u have to face now is the exam fear!

No, No, Mamma! I want to grow fast
Challenges, fears, are all things of the past!

No, my dear! One day when you grow
You will remember your Mamma's word though;
But now its time for you to do your homework
Oh no Mamma! this is what it really irks!

    Who can change the nature of life? Like it or not one has to grow and face the challenges bold and clean!

    Your six year old represents a class of innocents! Now they are blissfully ignorant of the hurdles lying ahead! Life would be harder for the coming generation than it is for us is a nagging thought for all the grown ups! A beautiful write Kavya!
