End of innocence

2013-09-18 19.33.48

A toy fallen in the middle of the road,

Obstructs everyone’s way,

No passerby picks it,

Everyone leaps, dodges and walks away,

A kid jumps on to it from nowhere and grabs the toy,

Loving it, making it his own,

He loses sense of the place where he stands,

He sees a world of pleasure, joy and company in the toy,

He is busy loving, connecting and cajoling it,

When a mad, brash, monster hits both,

The world of love ends at that moment.

No one to mourn; strangled and defeated,

By the pace of the fast and furious world.
