Live Like a Child
I was born.. but I found not the meaning of birth..
If you died, A sudden embark to a land beyond.. You couldn’t fathom death either..
I lived an innocence.. Forgotten for long..Then I lived in it from the out..
The fight for a candy.. Moments pass… huddled together with silly smiles..pink tongues..
Candies.. toys.. A run across the fields heedless of the sundown.. or the scorcher sunshine…
I felt the hallucinations we impose on thy innocence… I felt the trysts we curse it with..
Now you are mashed, molded, drained, rushing towards a speck of life you see afar.. ..
You know your colors well, but see them as spots.. Unseeing them in nature’s joyous endowment..
You know the variances.. but you forgo.. then turn away from the nature of their wondrous existence..
But I lived in it from the out.. you must to.. Because it’s in you, waiting to clutch your finger with its tiny palm..
Flip the pages of your learnt lyrics of life to the moments you cherished as a child..
Fight not for lands.. Fight not for the end you know not of.. be not a foe to a brother in another color..
Be not in combat with kindness.. let it sway you to the hedge of your paths..
Let it lead you to the forest of fallen leaves.. yellow..green..orange.. dancing colors on the trees..
Fear not the paths yet to come.. fluster not about the paths you leave..
Run in the fields as you would.. for you live a life unknown..
To know you must live like nature.. Flair in colors that make you smile
Stagger not my child, autumn is here..
The crisp sound as you walk.. is the sound of a new flourishing time to come..
I reveled in living.. Skipping away from the ways to live..
I cradled the child.. nudged it awake..teaching it to breathe again.. as if a baby in deep slumber..
One fine day..soon you might serve nature your bequest.. A creation..
Then you might know birth.. the tears of joy would stir you eyes..and your heart..
Death of thy friend is sad for footsteps are heard no more..
It made me stop in my trial.. leaves breathed no more.. only the sun flickered in my eyes..
Memories in the wrinkled minds.. soft fragrance blows in the breeze..ruffles your feathered mind..
Your friend..Your brother…you sister..the hands you held.. and the sunshine..
The autumn leaves and the colors that ravished the fields.. fill your heart with the music of past joy…
Your heart with sweet smiles.. the moments you lived like a child..
To the beyond them might pass… and you might pass..
But the winds shall remember the brush of your smile as you ran and you lived like a child.
