A BOY INSIDE A MAN
 

He has a young boy’s height in a man’s body. He has a humor of a boy and an intellect of a businessman. He has a strong personality but a soft heart.
Once upon a time, at his teenage days, he fell in love. Unfortunately, like any other love story, the girl broke his heart. He cried, he mourned, and for his first love he thought would be the last girl that he’ll ever love. He developed an intense, irrational, or inappropriate fear to fall madly, deeply in love with somebody.
A man in him knows how to handle his girls, but a boy in him was scared to love them completely. The man look at me straight in the eye while telling a lie while the boy breaks down and cry. The man said he wants a wife, the boy needs his mother. The man always says Goodbye while the boy wants to hold on to forever without even knowing why. The first thing that comes to a man’s mind is his Family in capital F, the boy often thinks about Play in capital P.
After some time, he met the girl who broke his young boy’s heart. The girl apologized. Remorse was written all over her face. The man wants to grin in satisfaction but the boy was taken aback by his emotions.
Despite of this man’s complexity, many girls fall for his lethal charm, his sweetness, his positive outlook in life, and his genuine heart. What’s in him not to love anyway?
Today, the man fall in love again, this time he hopes that she’s the right one for him. The man wants to take care of his princess while the boy wants to be taken care of. The man wants to be the king; the boy wants to be the soldier.
Whenever I look into his eyes, I often see the boy in him. There was a happy, carefree, and fearless young boy that was trapped in a cold-blooded, confident, and intimidating man’s body.
The best thing that ever happened to this guy is that…he fell in love with a woman having a young girl’s heart...
