Allow me….

I have great pleasure in sharing a thought-provoking poem that was penned by a parent whose child is part of the Gulmohar Days craft club. The poem is a humble request by a child to be left alone and be allowed to learn and grow at a comfortable pace. Beautiful words, thanks for sharing this Sangeeta! I hope the muse visits you often!

Allow me to grow
at my own pace
Please dont hasten me
I have rainbows to trace

Allow me to linger
a little while longer
on clouds and sunshine
until my confidence is stronger

Allow me to learn
how to break free on my own
after-all even a butterfly
came out of a worm
