Life and a Glass of Milk

Vansh Sharma

 

This book is about life through the eyes of a child. It is an amalgamation of thoughts and experiences of a young writer who wants to grow up fast so that he can be independent to discover the world in-depth and what lies within… though when he is grown he will weep on the “good old days.”

 

Pages of Nostalgia,
Said the man as he smiled
As he shed nostalgic tears
Rolling to his parched lips
Quenching a portion of his thirst
Reminding himself of his thorough childhood
Memories, familiar faces,
Fiendish but friendly acts of
Affection and devotion to those he loved
And what was more, he dreamt
Of his outlooks on life
It was as if he had his current life
while sipping a glass of milk –
Life through the eyes of a child
– Vansh Sharma

This is a delightful book of poems written by a young man of twelve. He has a keen eye for observing the world around him, and a true talent for putting his experiences and observations into words. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

I got this book via a free promotion. Such an eye-catching cover! A 12 year old boy writing poetry? Fantastic! You’ve clearly got some talent and a depth of thought that is inspiring from such a young lad. I especially liked the poems that had a shape like Light to Dark and Sunrise to Sunset. Very clever. Keep writing! 🙂

Written with such simplicity yet very profound and very deep….
What wisdom from such a young man.
My favourite was ” The Truth “…
And having lost my dad, I could relate to to ” Nothing Left “
Well done Vansh…keep soaring high.
A great read.
Waiting for a hard copy to give my son as a gift. Truly inspiring.
