A Realisation

Vedika Paliwal

Where did my childhood go?
That chubby face with a smile engraved,
Could melt even the toughest.
That jumping and running with tiny limbs,
Be it outside home or within.
That little mouth which chattered endlessly,
Was always forgiven for any folly. 
Those little treats : teddys, cars and sweets,
Those simple games which we played like insanes,
The delight of them all, was so cheering. 
Those friendship bands and holding hands,
And on 'pinky promises', we took a stand.
Thinking of my childhood , gives me umpteenth memories.
How can i forget those times ,
When i was adored by everybody?
Time flies by, and so did i grow up. 
Only to realise that the world's a selfish place,
Full of poisons and maze!
But every step we take , is something in our fate.
Things happen for a reason,
Either a blessing or a lesson.
And gathering all this, i bloomed with maturity.
And looking back, i realised
The best thing in life, is to hold on to your strength.
And after wandering here and there,
I realised, my childhood went nowhere, 
It is still within me.
Residing in my innocence,
 And I'll embrace it.
Because Sweetheart, 
This is 'My Strength',
And I'll shine with it.

  • The poet has brought extreme nostalgia as the childhood is captured perfectly through words. Also, even when the transformation from child to a grown up is shown the poet has managed to capture the optimistic view of the world which is very soothing.
