There's still a child in me






(Photo by Sinademiral)

A child in me says "Eat Lollipop! Just go!"
A grown up in me pulls me back saying "No"

A child in me says "Blow the bubbles! Just go!"
A grown up in me pulls me back saying "No"

A child in me says "You can jump! After all you are excited! Just go!"
A grown up in me pulls me back saying "No"

A child in me says "Just fight with your bro! Be naughty!...Do all the mischief! Just go!"
A grown up in me pulls me back saying "No"

A child in me says "It's raining! Come On!, Let's make paper boats! Just go!"
A grown up in me pulls me back saying "No"

A child in me says "Just do what you wish to do! Just go!"
A grown up in me tells me to act appropriately and pulls me back saying "No"

But....

No matter how much older we grow,
There is always a child residing within us
We just suppress it
Why is it so?

I wish we could grow
Very very slow!

Wow this was a sweet poem.. I liked it.. I know the child in me says so much, but I have to resort to grown up ways.. but yes. there's a child in me and I do what i want now.. Heheh.. :D .. I wish we didn't grow up so fast!

True, we all have a child in us, but our maturity (or grown up conditioned mind) prevents us from enjoying innocent and true beauty of life.. We all want to slip back into our past. What lost is always treasured most, isnt it ?

So cute child within you ..And you know while talking to you I never feel that I'm talking with elder one..you're so playful and joyous that let out the child within me :)

Very sweet poetry..let us grow slowly slowly :D :p

Louise Hernan said...

Great poem Valli and so very true! Sometimes, as adults, we are too worried about what's appropriate, just like you said. I agree with you too that we all have an inner child inside us. :)

@valli

a child in me says to pat on your back... but the grown up in me says patting is less to appreciate give some great comment...

a child in me says to give some great comment... but the grown up in me says commenting is less just try to give some more exactly wat u felt...

a child in me says to present what i felt.. but the grown up in me says it is not possible to put what u felt because you are not a child to do like that...

its really a dilemma within us.. composed very well... it is not a child or grown up in me its a friend in me says this comment... have nice day
