When I was just a little boy!!!?



When I was just a little boy,
I never had any worries,
I did everything with a sense of joy,
I never regretted for any of my follies;
I climbed on a mango tree,
And later, I found a snake,
Curled round its bottom,
In a sudden shock, I jumped from the tree,
I was scared but did not,
Stay in a frenzy mood;
A strong sense of fearlessness,
Remained in my younger days,
When I found the world in a joyous mood.!!.
