The poem is about maturity and how experiences in life change us.


I wish if life was still as easy as the ABC

But that can’t be done as I can see

We were so small and childish

With unoccupied mind and so boyish

Playing, watching TV, and going to school

That was regarded so cool

We grew up to find out that life is so complicated

And most of the time it’s terribly unfair!

We have to be aware of people who hide their real faces

And attack us in different places

True friends are found in imaginary stories

Few or none can be depended on

Each day, we learn a new lesson

That teaches us how to listen

To our mind before our heart

To feel pain when we depart

But life goes on…

And we always try to hold on

To continue living … In a world where there is no living

It’s no more the ABC

I was trying to be

Definitely, nothing but me!
