The child within

Innocent smile
Inquisitive mind
Innate stubbornness

The qualities with which
I was born


Respecting elders
Helping friends
Daily prayers

From childhood to this date
I am unchanged


Laughing out loud with people around
Crying alone
Trying to manage everything on my own

Living life
Within a shell


Nurturing dreams
Toiling to fulfill them
Soaking cheeks if something fails out

Believing more in me
Than the world around


Doing what I like
Without hurting anyone around
Freedom is all I strive for


Those young days
When I got what I want
Seem to exist lifelong


If ever I stumble
I get up, and dust off the knees
So that I can once again run vigorously to reach the post


No matter how much the world wants me to bow
Failing miserably every time it tries to does so
… As the child within refuses to grow!
