Wisdom On The Freeway
Author: Newage Caveman


Whistling down the roads of the city
I saw little raindrops drizzle on the ground
As I spotted the four wheeler with children in it
My joy knew no bounds.

One boy pushed the vehicle forward
While one clung to its rear
The third was singing tunes in frenzy
It seemed like these boys had no fear.

The fourth kid who made merry
Pushed the wagon through the freeway
The vehicle started gaining momentum
Once it started rolling through the subway.

As the vehicle whizzed through the subway
One boy backed out unwittingly
As I smiled at the remaining threesome
They laughed back in glee.

My day starts off afresh
My day starts with a quote
These kids were neither sons of guns
Nor were they rulers of the coast.

The three children taught me a lesson
Smiling at little things in life
Itís not money that makes you richer
Itís not money that makes you wise

The children symbolized freedom
Freedom of the spirited soul
Learning to smile despite the odds
Brightens your life as it unfolds.

------- Author's Notes -------

Life is all about smiling. Children teach us the lesson of heartfelt happiness. In Wordsworth's true words, 'Child is the father of man!'.
