Even growing up as a sincere student,
I skipped somewhere the chapter
“How to live your life”.
So being at a point where I have nothing to loose,
I can wonder more where the things went wrong.
Was it when the whole society convinced me
to accept the reality a/c to them instead of imagining it the way I want?
While a child is so stubborn for being convinced that he could end up sharpening a pencil until satisfied with the size he finds perfect,
Was it when I failed successively and began giving up on myself?
While a child never give up easily until he is done having it.
Was it when I was scared of growing old and achieving nothing,
While for a child, growing older is the pass to have everything.
Pondering over such thought, finally I realized where I was mistaken,
“To be happy and get the success you desire,
Growing older is a myth,
Coz these are the things which only
a child can accomplish.”
