This is an expression of life compiled poetically. Children often have many doubts and questions to ask and we all have been through similar situations. Even as an adult, never underestimate the power of asking questions and trying to figure out what ultimately soothes and satisfies the mind.
Looking around the crowd fills me up with anxiety
Oh, the wish to blossom more and more…
As I sit and observe
Murmurs my soul to me
Seek happiness and strength in this world to be
When you’re old and gray and full of sleep
Will you still be struggling to take this life’s leap
The magic of love and happy faces around to seek
And the warmth of touch and wrinkled smiles and a peace so deep
Looking above, the infinite sky
Scream my hopes to make me fly
I wonder how small my fears are..
But not just milestones I aim to achieve
Love and inner peace for me to weave
Surely papers and files will mark my heights
When in old age, it’s only the pilgrimed soul I want to light
—–Have hope.Keep faith—–
