Sometimes life bogs me down,
With responsibilities and duties to everyone.
The everyday mundane things make me frown.
Making me ignore my spirit and losing my bounce.
Where is the excitement? Where is the thrill?
Where are the drums, whistles and frills?
I wanted to grow up so eagerly.
But life’s shackles has taken hold of me tightly.
I wish I could be a kid for one day,
Making sand castles, jumping on puddles and making funny shapes out of clay.
Finding joy in the littlest things
Laughing out loud by making silly songs.
Eating candies and marshmallows without a guilt.
Feeling happy to exist in this wonderful place filled with magic.
Living my life with enthusiasm
And digging myself out of this self made chasm.
Oh I wish I could be a child for one day…
And never forget that this life is indeed a grand holiday!
