Growing Up

Updated: Jun 30, 2021

The world is somehow small, yet very big

Its horizons are expanding, while its hopes are narrowing.

And I wonder if it is really life that is getting harder,

Or my mind falling short of its vigor.

It is the best time of anyone's life they say;

Yet, I want the inner turmoil to be soon over.

The doubting, the loathing, the wondering every day,

About the future and its ever growing terror.

I don’t like the changes in my mind, my body,

I miss the little child who wasn't scared

Change this world again to make it the way it was,

Oh! Change me back to the way I was.
