Poem on Child

Updated on December 12, 2010

Children are Pure than Life itself Treat them Accordingly

Child's Wit

A teacher asked a student
To define life

The student had a knack
Of crafting new thoughts
Out of naught
He started to chant something like this

Yin-yang-yin
Yo-yo
Yo-yo
Yo

When yin sleeps
Yang wake-up
Yin yang yin
Yo-yo
Yo-yo
Yo

Together they fit
To form a whole
Yin-yang-yin
Yo-yo
Yo-yo
Yo

Opposite they are
But still seeking balance
Yin-yang-yin
Yo-yo
Yo-yo
Yo

Contrary but still
Not in opposition
Yin-yang-yin
Yo-yo
Yo-yo
Yo

Two aspects
Of a single truth
Yin-yang-yin
Yo-yo
Yo-yo
Yo

Rather than trying to replace each other
They transform into a single reality
Yin-yang-yin
Yo-yo
Yo-yo
Yo

The teacher listened
And got furious
Said with a sneer
I could not discern
Your babble your prattle
If you could yourself
Please mister nonsense!

The child turned crimson
But still had dare
He countered the teacher
By means of wit:
Life is a whole
With dual poles
If Yang is the light
Yin is the night
Yang bites yin
Yin bites yang
Both have to fleet
As they are on a flight
What then lasts!
Is yo-yo
Yo-yo
Yo
So dear teacher
Am I not right?

This is a free verse I wrote for a humor poetry competition. It is about a child who is witty, confident and have desire to know the world but the teacher is an orthodox one and she does not want to listen any deviating answer.

      You are a good poet! Ameen!!! ying and yang. this a chinese. I have heard of this and like it very much. yin and yan have to be balanced, to lead a balanced life! I think Chinese meridian Therapy is based on this. I learned about this when learning Thai Massage! Beautiful!
