Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

Where did we lose it?

In response to V. J’s weekly challenge # 62, CHILDHOOD/CHILD

Childhood, a beautiful phase of life

where the soul radiates an innocent aura

the heart devoid of any malice,

forgiveness is a virtue to swear by

abundant echoes of laughter resonate

ย tiny delights translate to happiness

the questioning mind experiments

dreams take a fancy flight to fantasy

ingenious creativity sparks unique solutions

simplicity defines each moment.

Then,

Why as we grow into adults do we bury

these genuine and transparent qualities

ย in the sands of time?

    So true, Radhika. I wonder why we as adults, we let go of these childly God like qualities and embrace the demons of adulthood โ€ฆ

    Itโ€™s painful to consider, isnโ€™t it? And yet, I think it is true of most of us, that the magic of childhood loses its lustre. Love how you have structured this.

    Adulthood most certainly steals many qualities from our younger, innocent selves. Thatโ€™s beautifully written, dear! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, it is a bitter truth that children lose those beautiful qualities when they grow into adults.
