It all began on a stormy, winters day,

when I finally popped out.

Every one sighed and said "finally"! Through the rain I was escorted home, the ray of sunshine, One day old.

As I grew I discovered I was quiet, shy and an introvert.

I preferred hanging out with myself,

then with family or anyone else.

As for friends? Who cared, I was 8 and books kept me awake, long through the night.

Entering my first double number "10"

I matured early and soon found that the word sport and Me,

went quite well together. From horse-riding to body boarding,

my faze with skateboarding and martial arts,

through my obsession of basketball.

Sports! I went through them all,my obsessions didn't last.

I zoomed past my preteen years, and excitedlyas I enteredmy teens big "13"I realized being old, is all about wishing you were younger. "BIG

In grade 8, joining karate was a big step upwards,

i felt great!

I renewed my self-esteem, charged up my confidence and carried on life ,

with a new set of batteries.

And now I am on a pit-stop at 14,

an even but unsteady number.

As I look back, I discover I've grown.

From my first friend, to my first zit,

From mud-cake, tea-parties, to sleepovers,

From being a tom boy, to the whole girl-girl thing,

From books, to bikes,

From my time of jahiliyah(ignorance)

from darkness into light

Counting down the years, I recall:

Through hardship, blood, and tears

Boy! I'm glad I made it through the years!

And it is here, that I stand,

with my poem in hand
