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 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.
