Taming This Tyke's Voice Since 2007

Child Once, Too


Let the child run free, up-hills or down-plains

Like a gazelle that gallops in prairies.

Let him swim in lakes, bath in rains

And coquette like the mystical fairies.

Censor him not for he is free from stains

Trust not the filthy minds of the gentries.

Free the child from the restraining chains

And from the customs’ narrow boundaries.

Let him be for his generations’ gains ~

Allow the children to weave their stories.

    Let the child experience life, to live his own life. If I have to live again, I want to live the same life, but I wanted to live it fully. Especially my childhood years.

    I wish you well ~ Jeques

    I’m not really a big fan of Alanis. The last time I heard of her was her song something like “Ironic, ” I don’t know the title, which doesn’t really talk about irony. But this song you mentioned sounds intersting. Do you have the lyrics?

    We can go on and grow up, but at the same time still be child-like.

    I wish you well ~ Jeques

  5. jeques, this is such a sweet poem about a child. yeah, i also agree that we have to let the children to enjoy their youth. we had once been there, and like them, the memories, either happy or sad, will enrich them through their adult lives. thanks for encouraging me, though at this point in time, i am travelling through some personal difficulties. once it is sorted out, i will write again. sorry for that. i hope you understand that i cannot concentrate writing if i am in great distress.

  6. Marvin,

    I’m sorry to hear about the struggles you’re going through at the moment, I understand. But as I always said from a famous movie line, THIS, TOO, WILL PASS.

    I’m not in the position to assure you that life would be easy, but rest assured that in my thoughts I whisper ‘lil prayers that you will have the strength to overcome whatever it is that’s giving you great distress. I have known you through your writings, I have an impression that you’re a very strong man – I believe you’ll get through all these and when you do, they would be uplifting and inspiring subjects for your writings.

    I’m just here, Marvin.

    I wish you well.

    ~ Jeques
