I wish our kids could be carefree like us the 80’s kids again!

I wish they could walk in the neighbourhood
follow a ball, make some runs
play in the rain, get wet for fun
sail a paper boat, fly a plane
Just be carefree like us the 80’s kids again!

I wish they could go for long walks
hold hands, run along the streams
enjoy picnics, some mangoes with cream
scream, shout, board imaginary fun-train
Just be carefree like us the 80’s kids again!

I wish they had more friends who were real
they had faces, not ID’s or Avatars
they could touch not screens, but each other’s hearts
remember to smile and share best-friend’s pain
Just be carefree like us the 80’s kids again!

I wish our kid’s childhood was not burdened with our fear
our anxiety, our nightmares did not follow them around
the wolves, the hyenas wouldn’t enter their playground
that they could live on the innocence lane
Just be carefree like us the 80’s kids again!



So I came across Flintobox asking us to walk down the memory lane to bring that one magical thing back to our kid’s Bachpan (Childhood). I jumped on this beautiful opportunity that #BachpanWithFlinto blogger contest sent our way. So I sat down to write and there were so many things that jumped and squealed inside my head- kite flying, playing with marbles, jumping in puddles or just lying on the back and gazing at the stars. But when I sat down with my pen I instantly knew that the one and the only thing that I want my kid’s bachpan to really have is “Being Carefree”.
