Realization short poem

Photo by ChodHound

When I saw some kids, playing in the street,
With a wish to join them, in that summer heat,
Soon, a ray of realization came,
That my innocence was no more the same.

When I wanted to join, the youth brigade,
With a strong desire, that some difference be made,
Soon, a realization hit my head
That today’s youth had been misled.

When I went to the experienced and old,
Thinking their wisdom would be a mine of gold,
Soon, I discovered something really strange,
That they were totally against change.

Where do fly my prying eyes Like a pair of rustic birds ?! Where the breeze and lily leaves Playing game of hide and seek, Where the glossy twinkle stars Wearing anklets and bangles, Where the pretty fairy queens Weaving
