Little Rani wants to play

a poem by Saktheee S Ravichandran

I want to play
Like the children in nearby huts
My toys and friends are calling me
To talk and play with them

My eyes are searching stars and moon
To have my dinner from your hands
I want to sleep in my mom’s laps and
Want to travel on my father’s back

Listen Mom, I want to play
Don’t send me to schools and creche
I hate to cry and weep in there
Let me stay at home and
Allow me to enjoy my childhood days
