Let Them Be Children

Let Them Be Children 

14th November is celebrated as Children's Day in India, it is the birthday of India's first prime minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru who was very fond of children. Children are free spirited and we must let them as they are and dream for themselves, Happy Children's Day


Don't stop , don't interrupt 
let their dreams fly,
let them touch the sky,
let them have fun,let them learn
let them be children.

Don't pressurize, don't criticize 
let them choose their way,
bookish knowledge do stay,
but there are books beyond books,
which change how we looks 
and how things we churn,
let them be children.

Don't judge,don't grudge
let their innocence prevail,
let them come out of shell,
let aim them high,let dream them high,
because dreams make future turn 
let them be children.

This poem is linked to Poetry Jam ( dream ) and Five Sentence Fiction ( Flight)

  1. hope today's parents with school going children read these lines...it's so sad to see unhappy kids struggling to find their own space, their own sky & pressurized to fulfill parents' dream...very well captivated...

  3. Childhood ideally should be a magical happy time for everyone....to sustain one through adulthood. It is the greatest gift a parent can give his child

  4. Yes, let them be children.....let them dream without judging them....they are only young for a little while, and they deserve this time without undue pressures. Wonderful sentiments expressed here, Cifar.

  5. I totally agree with you. Between the parents' pressure requiring their kids to succeed and society which asks them to grow up fast, children hardly have the space to dream.

  15. Cifar,

    A celebration of the innocence and the chances for freedom, which little children deserve to enjoy. Sometimes this world can be a tough place, yet we must strive to allow children that opportunity to become themselves too!!
