the innocent creature

the innocent creature

A Poem by sakshi arora
"

i really wonder about this

"

These eyes twinkle like stars

This face is so soft that reminds me of candy floss.

 

People say, this miniature human is innocuous and naïve,

Has never been guilty of any crime.

 

But isn’t assuming about the undiscovered our old habit?

Maybe, this mini creature is mysterious enough to never utter a word

And rightly knows that speech is silver but silence is golden.

 

Maybe even he can conspire

And has a sense of satire.

 

I can’t really get inside his mind.

Can there be any recondite truth to find?

Do his actions have any hidden intention behind?

 

Does he laugh at my great comical effort?

Or mocks me saying do u really need to stutter to talk to me ? No wonder why we stutter when we start talking and then we are blamed for not pronouncing the words correct

 

Does he weep to signal his hunger?

Or is so possessive that he can’t see the other man cuddling his mother?

 

What is he pondering over

When his eyes are wide?

Is he worried to see his future as a bearded man with a heavy briefcase?

Or excited enough to show off his Gucci case?

 

Does he deliberately create the cute nuances in his expressions

When all he wants is to be the center of attraction.

 

Does he practice to walk with his kicks?

Or is symbolically abusing the pompous around?

 

Why does he cry socializing with not so known?

Do their auras lack the filial warmth?

Or is he honest enough to make his trust issues public?

 

Is he cunning enough to mask his vices

And make us believe that his innocence brim

And is guilty of no sin.

A lot of food for thought in this one...babies are intriguing figures, no doubt about that...I wonder if we'll ever truly tap into their psyches...the questions you raise are totally relevant and have me thinking as well...a thoughtful and introspective piece...nicely done :)

In my beliefs and reads on theories of reincarnation, I have come to the conclusion that babies are born with unparalleled intelligence and knowledge, therefore need intense care which fades with their memories as they grow up to imbibe new lessons of this life.

I like how you have used your imagination.
Bravo.

thank u so much :)
I liked the way you analysed the things that we usually take for granted. It raises the questions of how much does a baby understand, how much have the parents already implanted, genetically.
You could have started a new universal argument with this piece. - but who should get the Nobel Prize.?
A clever enjoyable poem.

thank u sir :)
i love this...i always wonder they are thinking...and wish i could speak "baby talk"

now for encore or sequel...i could see you writing another piece from the baby's perspective...it would probably have a bit of sarcasm as the baby would wonder why it matters so much to us what he is thinking.

very cool poem

Research has shown that babies are really very intelligent and sensitive people. They know and understand more than they think. Hats off to you for bringing it out in these great, thinking lines.
