When it was CHILDHOOD !!



In those days of childhood,

When I was under the hood,

Of mom and dad and all around,

When I was always home bound.


When all that mattered was just,

The moment to be lived best,

When dreams were limited,

To a peer’s possessions –prized,

When the concern was only

Getting punished for folly,

When the struggles were simple,

 But only not to get pimples,

When the heart was broken,

Only when toys were broken,

When fights broke out,

Over issues petty but sorted out,

When jealousy made its way,

But could easily be put away,

When love was always true,

With whole heart and virtue,

When fury made friends broken,

But cured with a chocolate token,

When tensions were real,

But only for exams in real,

When falling sick was seen fluky,

As missing school was for few lucky,

When diet contained everything,

But diets were not named anything,

When beauty did bother,

But by the beholder in the mirror,

When money was important,

But it was nothing so potent,

When opinions did matter,

But only of parents – however.


In those days of childhood,

When I was under the hood,

Life was filled with life,

And dreams were life like,

When I had no clue about

What lay ahead was just a bout,

When all I wanted was growing up,

Coz I wanted to put make up,

I never knew nothing would be the same,

And growing up was a trap of a game.
