Play Ground

Play Ground

A Poem by Avinash
"

We are here to play

"
This is a place
Strange and known
standing at one corner
I see few things 
I always see

A slider with a slope
One kid smiling
while going down
one crying not even
ready to climb it up

Some came with their parents
some without them
some are laughed at
some make friends
some are pushed and some cry
some fight back and become a Hero

One is  bruised
don't want to come back
while another stand up
and run back again
like nothing happened

there is a swing
that takes you high 
and comes back
and you see things
the way you never saw them before

Seesaw has two of them
those who balance
enjoy the most
while the odd ones
run away for a different game

Some hug and some kiss
some promise to meet again
Some of them smiling
and some have pain
But I look from distance

and realize no matter what
I have come here to play
before the sun sets
I push the gate and run inside
as fast as I can...here I come.

More or less the life is also the same....We have to go in and play in this playground. That is why we are here.

Life is our playground, and we learn to play, and interact at a young age, we're thrown together, each comes away with a different view. Reminds me of everything I ever needed to learn I leaned in kindergarten...lovely Avinash.

Thanks Freida .. for your beautiful words which extend the thought process of this poem.
Ah, I remember playing on playgrounds when I was younger. Well, I've played on some while I was older, as well, haha. I love that you compared this to life. Great job.

Thanks Brittany for taking time to read and leaving the beautiful words.
This is lovely! Whatever the effort, whether we run, crawl, laugh or cry...we have to "play" and venture, your writing is always so carefully penned and leaves a poignant message x
