A Collab Post!

This poem was written in collaboration with Tanvi at A Lightyear Journey. Even though we have worked on this together, it is Tanvi who came with the idea and she is the one who contributed the most!

Her blog is full of beautiful poems, which never fail to amaze me. Her writing style is very captivating and I am hundred and one percent sure that you are going to love her works! So what are you waiting for? Go check out her blog here!


I Wish I Was A Kid Again

I wish I was a naive little kid again.

Unaware of the dirt lying within this world full of school rhymes,
Unaware of the scorns inside these people’s minds.

I wish I was a carefree, joyful kid again.

I won’t have to wake up to my nail marks crucifying the pillow,
From the stressful nightmares of tomorrow.

I wish I was that estranged kid again.

Unaware of the words insecurity, guilt or regret.
Unaware of the torture; now I wish to forget.

I wish I was that colourful kid again.

Always jumping towards the colour of rainbow and never pertaining towards black.
Always laughing merrily with friends and never thinking they would turn their back.

Tell me if I’m wrong,
But don’t you wish to be a kid again?
Away from all the disappointment,
feeling like you’re living in vain.

Tell me if I’m wrong,
But don’t you wish to be a kid again?
To enjoy life as you once did,
When insane and sane were the same.

I wish I was that kid again…..

Ishita Gupta & Tanvi Kamra

          1. Nope….there’s lot of ping-pong going on without a real solution….so after spending around 70 days with different issues, I shut it down

            Thanks in advance for your support 🙏✨

  2. Beautiful😍 it is!!
    We all at some point of our life miss our childhood or what we used to be as a child

  3. Ishita this is so beautiful. I don’t know what you mean because my childhood was full of terror for me. However, your words tell me what it means for your and your collaborator, being free from the ugly burdens of adulthood.

    I loved the poem, beautifully expressive and full of deep emotions.

    These lines were so touching:

    “I won’t have to wake up to my nail marks crucifying the pillow,
    From the stressful nightmares of tomorrow.” (So nicely done my kind friend) Love to you – Joni
