I am delighted to share this poem from my son Sanved Doshi, Age 12 years, and the painting below by my nephew Ishan Shah, Age 14 years, to go with his poem.
You think some things are unfair.
The time will be all gone
You can’t think that long.
The time comes back
You think there is a lack.
Soon you have a kid called John.
You realize it’s all gone.
You will never get time back
If you still lay on a sack.
You think that it’s gone
But there is always another dawn.
You should go and enjoy a dance
There is always one more chance.
If you never get to use your knacks
You will just sit at home and pay a tax.
I know Sanved is going to come home from school today, eager to see the responses on his poem 🙂
