All we wanted was peace and solace
Just fantasizing about becoming rich by copying our role models
Not by comparing others’ lives to ours
When games meant Ring-a-Ring o’ Roses
Or kho kho ?
All we wanted was to procrastinate sleep hours for a little bit more of the television
Staying active meant playing and frolicking
And not just social media
Sunshine of happiness wrapped us from everywhere
Yesterday, we all wanted to grow up….
Our confused little heads are making decisions by predictions of someone else
It’s the time when games mean manipulating minds to hurt the innocent souls
Yeah we’re enjoying to our heart’s content yet are dissatisfied
Making new friends and losing the ones we count on
Our priority is just the appraisal and critics
We want silence yet are running to keep up the pace, competing with all
Faking happiness on the social media
Today, we all want to retire from the work we are entrusted with….
All we would do is watch ourselves grow up once again
By watching the tiny tinkling eyes sparkle with joy and their boisterous bodies hopping in front of us
Antakshari would be the mind games and the chit chat would be our work
We’d sit every night introspecting
Feeling glad to have been gone through the thick and thin of life
Some would regret the negative deeds
While some would still have that spirit of youth oozing out and would travel
Tomorrow, we would want ourselves to be children again….
