I wish..



I wish, i could be a kid again,
put all my worries down the drain,
Living life kid style,
No reason to walk the extra mile!!


Was waking up early the only pain,
What have we achieved growing up sane?
Lets exchange frowns for teacher's cane,
It was a blissful boon, not bane!

Messy frocks to branded shoes
Now, i would the latter choose,
Then, a new compass  brought a smile
Smile, we look for in expensive lifestyles!

When "now" weighs down,
"Then" rescues like a clown,
When present seems insane,
I wish i could be a kid again!

  2. i have this theory...human beings never grow up...their brains are programmed to believe that they should behave a particular way at a particular age....and so the start imitating that...there a kid hidden within us always...all one needs to do is find it :)

  10. Society doesn't wants us to be kids.
    Parents ask us to grow up, gf/bf bug us asking to be more "mature".. Entertainment industry has some kind of propaganda going on wanting everyone to be adults.

    Interestingly enough, the scientists crowd stay as kid-like as they can. Coz in Science the saying goes, Think like a kid, act on it like an adult.
