Childlike: Innocence

Explain your biggest regret — as though to a small child.
Photographers, artists, poets: show us CHILDLIKE.
(Here I am posting again a poem which I wrote on Innocence.  It is not a regret but I would say we have to keep that childlike Innocence alive in us to live a happy life )




Those sparkling eyes, that charming smile
That countenance full of love
You cast a spell on everyone,
Innocence, you are a child!

Your naughty pranks, your witty lies,
Your cries and your giggles
I have no answer to your endless queries
Innocence, you are a child!

You know no caste, you know no creed
You know no envy and pride
You put to shame, men at war
Innocence, you are a child!

I watch you sleep, undisturbed
A picture of serenity!
With a smile on your face and a tear in your eye
Innocence, you are a child!

    And how sad that such innocence which knows no caste or creed will soon be taken over by bigots and brigands!
