The Family Tree

by Jaipreet Grover

An inquisitive child learns every day,

At his own pace in an idiosyncratic way.

By watching, asking, playing, and more,

He wants his senses to explore.


Where do birds sleep when it rains?

When trees get cut, do they feel pain?

The child questions his parents,

 Ask “Google” to clear your doubts, said the grandparents.


Why is everyone busy with their smart gadgets,

Am I not the apple of our family tree?

While learning about a family safe circle,

Google wasn’t an option to encircle.


By struggling and searching,

He got his answers by self-learning.

Edited his old “Family Tree”,

And added a new member “Google” to this new tree!
