‘Eyeing through the lens’

Yes we'll walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And we'll go where the chalk-white arrows go,
For the children, they mark, and the children, they know
The place where the sidewalk ends.
~Where the Sidewalk ends


Past few months seem like a kaleidoscope 

             There have been great times, many events and fun

             But felt distant from self, as multitasking we coped

             Many hobbies ignored, some friendships slowed.

 Claiming victories, biting sorrows,

            Pinching out a grin to that amazing joke,

            Rising sea, receding sea,

            Receding slowly- back to the same shore.

  The waves of change do bring a shock

              When we choose to take a stand        

             Or succumb to be part of the flock? 

             Ah ! But slowly time must answer back.

 Half a day goes in the abode

Geegaws and mischief makers prance across,

Mulling about the changes alone,

Or are we the odd sheep in the flock?

   But isn’t it ‘’now’ that we create memories 

          Failures, and mistakes sure a part

             But something later to be cherished

             Will be the good old days close to heart 

  Her peeking in, till you have to sigh,

 Giving in to her bated eyes,

 Laughing till the skull cries,

  Farce culminated with a sweet lie.

   Carefree as we roam around

              Innocence deep inside

              Acting like an open book

              Having too much weight to hide.

  P’rhaps they are more troubled

             When they choose to walk alone,

           Or Perhaps we youth  are,

            Just a complex mystery -always unknown
