Adulthood


Heaven and Hell exist in our mortal mind
No place on earth can show there sign
Yet we console and tie-up with our mind
To believe it is present in some place for sure.

That very moment when my thoughts became free
That very moment when my actions were not guided
That very moment when I acted as per I wished
That very moment when my conscience beat
That very moment I began to dislike

I grew up, that was a mere beginning
I grew up, to cease an innocent child
I grew up, to deceive and fake like others
I grew up, to kill my good instinct.

Heaven was breaking apart and hell reigned
That very moment I can recall I became an adult.
