Day 5: 5th April 2015 NAPOWRIMO
Mad dash of colours blur my vision,
Festoons, balloons and ribbons everywhere
Loud music travel through my ears to my heart
Making my feet dance
I am almost in a trance.
Laughter rings through the throngs of people
Making my tiny heart giddy too.
Slicing through the crowd we push forward
I pray, beg and yell for everything I spot
My little heart needs everything they have got.
Finally my mother stops,
Picking me up in her arms, and kissing me.
‘Slow down child,’ she said, ‘You have the entire day’
‘Let us go and get you a toy,’
I pointed at the big beautiful ball on display.
‘Beggars are not allowed’ shouted the man,
And shooed us away.
