Why do you need so badly to hide

Under that false façade?

Little one, haven’t you ever tried

To live your life unafraid of blood?


Can’t you shed that faux expression

Without being scared of decimation?

Terrified of acrid words that wound

But really, how much does it matter to you?


Little one, the world’s not a prison

Sure, it may be filled with obstacles and treason

But really, the only chains that stop you so

Are the ones that your emotions shackled to your own.

    Very beautifully written. I also tried to attempt something. If time allows do give it a try.

    Childhood memories are always precious. Today I’ve shared a thing I wrote in class 9. Hope you’ll like it.:) Merry Christmas.
