I am a toddler now and apple of everyone’s eyes,
I don’t understand what others are speaking, it’s all gibberish to me.
I learn to speak and my first word is ‘ma’,
She loves me the most and keeps me close all the time.
Today I learned to speak all the alphabets together, mummy is ecstatic!
Dad still carries me around on his back, we go to the park and so many other places.
My first day at school, I am scared,
Too many kids of my age, but I like that girl in the pink frock.
Mummy says I am growing fast!
I have started to ride my bicycle yesterday, dad is proud.
We hold hands, he does my homework,
Mummy is always worried about why I put on so much make up.
My 16th birthday!
The world is so much different now, people are penurious.
I enjoy the attention I am getting,
Mom and dad fuss a lot about what I do!
Now, I don’t like the glances, the stares,
Life is tough and demands a lot of hard work.
I have a million fixations now,
College, job, relationships, break ups, tears, the simplicity of life has forfeited.
