Shaurya Shah

Hello hello, your best friend Sara here! I totally loved this heartfelt and honest poem from 9 year old Shaurya Shah from Vadodara. Can hear all of our thoughts in his voice on what freedom means for us today- freedom from the boredom of being locked in!


Shaurya is a student of Billabong High International School.

Poem: The freedom I yearn for

I want freedom from boredom
And freedom from Corona’s tantrum


Home is the safe place in lockdown
But my mind is going up and down,
I want to go out with friends
And shop at the mall in weekends.


Be it Saturday or Sunday swimming
Or daily evening cycling,
Mama is telling no to Burger King
My birthday went without partying.


I missed beaches and mountain climbing
Even in wonderful weather of spring,
In this pandemic, we kids are sulking
Oh dear God! Now only you can change this thing.
