INFANCY

Goodluck Benjamin

  1. The joy of infancy

Lying in my cradle 😴 😴 

Cuddled by mama

Pet by sibling

Pampered by relations

Loved by the world 😍 

 

The joy of infancy

My mother never let any hurt

The milk is always at it's best

Always sweet never sour

 

At dozen, am due

Expendee go clean the dishes

Have you done the chores?

The older voice would echo in my head of empty room as it ache 😫 

 

At fifteen, more like a lion 

Am not pampered but crushed

Nor cuddled but whipped

My world now smells cruel

As I look forward the future; my fate

 

At scores, am free

The soil can bear me witness 

How the sun scourged me daily

The sky blue can testify that I had times slept under it

 

The joy of infancy

How I wish I remain an infant

Again cuddled by the older

Only if I can change my world

If there's reincarnation indeed!

I would never want to get old

There is joy at infancy.
