I saw the children playing the game from a distance.


The ten-year old freezed on his elder brother’s command.

My thoughts wandered, yet again.

What am I doing? Rushing. From the moment I wake up in the morning till the moment I close our eyes at the end of the day.

But rushing where? Just like the clock never stops ticking, I never stop running. From here to there, from there to somewhere else.

But why? Because life is a race. I have to come first.

Is life really a race? Who all are running in this race? I see no one except me!


As the elder child allowed the little one to release himself, I was also released of my thoughts and a lot of worries.

      1. Kids are so full of spirit and youth and when we become adults we lose track of the beauty in a game as simple as freeze tag. I think when I pick up my kids today from school we will play it for old times sake. 😉

      2. I so agree with you! There is so much to learn from kids. Sometimes their words and actions surprise me. Glad that you’ll have a renew your memories of the game 🙂

  1. I so relate to it!! Race..against time, against people, against yourself. But think of it, what have we really done to get out of this meaningless race.

    I have realised one stark change since i started writing my thoughts down – I am not excited about this race anymore. I don’t care if I get fancy bonuses or not. Screw the deals. My next destination is my own book. Someday..ya one day.

      1. Yeah..the idea is there. But given that I have started writing properly recently, don’t want to hasten it. I have the required emotions but yet documenting needs skill set. Would seek help 🙏🏻
