I am grown up, I am thirty,

I know what I ought to be,

Each time I feel I am an adult,

Each time a child in me says –

“Do you know what it is, to be an adult?”


Without any answer my lip begins to tremble, as if I am subjected to torment,

My heart pumps faster, dreading me of arteries blocked

I feel my legs go numb, as if I have walked miles and miles and have strength no more,

Darkness surrounds me, I feel my vision lost.

Suddenly child in me knocks at my soul’s door and with a smile says –

Think no more, fear no more, just be yourself and enjoy the flow (of life)


Once again the child in me trounce my adulthood,

The feeling of ecstasy surrounds me, reinvigorating my spirit,

Infusing me with all energy and enthusiasm,

I am convinced, it is better to be a child careless and freakish,

Than an adult, hairless and blandish.
