As I sipped my second cup of coffee,
Something caught my attention as I turned to see,

Mid school children engrossed in a game of kho kho,
Screaming and laughing as in out of the line they tore,

I immediately remembered what my Lil one once said,
How in this game she was always ahead,

I took the pretext of her medicine,
To check in at how she’s been,
Only to be informed that she’s been in tears,
And I wondered if she could have read my fears…
