Child within me

Most people although aged are very much young at heart They love to dance and play They get excited in small things How many old and middle aged would love to behave like young? Full of joy and enthusiasm Well... Most of them That day during a cricket match I made a bet with son As my team hit sixes and fours I clapped and jumped in joy I even danced an awkward dance My son said Mom you don't behave like fifty I said I don't care, I want to enjoy We all laughed, we had lot of fun I do whatever my mind says Sometimes child like and silly I am young at heart Such acts keep me always happy I often wonder why should one behave as grownup when still a child at heart Why can't we be our true self Instead of following stereotyped world It is so much fun to be a child Just be and see I got these words from dictionary: Enthusiasm, Awkward, Stereotyped, Self, Child Date: 10/14/2020 Winner 1st position
