I AM JUST A KID

I’m just a kid…

shin chan:my favourite cartoon character

With simple dreams,

I find miracles,

In ‘normal’ things.

Come, take my hand,

And lead me through,

There’s so much confusion,

I don’t know what to do.

I look at the stars,

And I try to see far,

Do we have a future,

That’s not wrought by war?

I never believed mom,

But now I see,she was right,

That we are a violent race,

And were born to fight.

I have a pain,

And it runs down deep,

There’s so much blood around,

With people being killed like sheep.

Dear Osama Uncle,

Let’s have a chat,

Why you took away my parents,

Please give them back.

There’s nothing to fight about,

Please give us a chance,

We wanna be happy too,

we too we wanna dance.

Please don’t scold me,

For dreaming so loud,

I know I wished too much,

In a world where wishes are not allowed.

I’m just a kid,

With simple dreams…..

    I enjoyed reading this poem, so much truth in what you said. Thank you for sharing it. I read your bio and wanted to let you know that I’m from West Bengal. You know I haven’t seen the one horned rhino yet. But I will have to keep looking when I go back and visit my friends.

      Hey! Glad you liked it! And you are welcome to Assam anytime. Please do visit the Kaziranga National part and see for yourself those magnificent creatures. I haven’t seen a rhino for real, either. But maybe, you can send me the pics, right!
