Grown up

By Josphin George 
You are a grown up now,
life must have changed for you, they say
but actually, it's the same.
I still cry, just not on mom's lap.
I still get scoldings, but not from my dad.

I still meet my friends but through a screen,
we talk late at night but only on birthday eves.
I smile for photos but very often for myself
creating memories is an old thing now,
"Did you Share it on social media!! No?" Ah well.

The taste of chocolate is just sweet now,
back then it was happiness.
giving your words to someone,
and keeping it for real were our promises.
Things I do now is same as before

Just their meanings are now what differ
Bit by bit we lose ourselves in time
now a blank face is what I see
when I look at myself in the mirror

    Jos… The first time we had a friend to friend conversation.. you told me boldly that this studying is not you want. All you want is to chase your dreams. I remember that day. I was just looking at you thinking: “really jos…..” Great to see what you told you got to do that.. and mostly you had the courage to do that..
    Keep flying baby.. Yes your words connect.. so keep writing.. share your positivity..bcoz i need it.. :-)
