Treasure Island

The gift of childhood


Ever since I was a little boy, I always wanted to grow up,
I was fed up of being ordered around and being told to shut up.

I never liked being small and I always hated school,
I always wanted to use a pen and never like pencil as my tool.

I wanted to go to tutions and never liked self study,
I always wanted to have friends outside school and have a true buddy.

I always wanted to use face-washes and never like the 'kids toothbrush',
I always wanted to have a life full of excitement and rush.

I wanted to wear casual clothes to school and never liked PT,
But little did I know that this phase of my life I would again never see.

Eight years on, I got what I had always wished for,
I wish I was a bit careful with the wishes because I am having a war.

I hate being 'BIG' and now I miss school,
I hate the using the pen and I dont mind the pencil as my tool.

Tutions are pathetic and self study is better,
There are no such things as a true buddy because everyone's a traitor.

Pimples are disheartening and face-washes have ruined my face,
My life is such a big rush that I dont have time to tie my lace.

Casual clothes are a bore and you dont know what to wear,
You waste a lot of time thinking but all you do is stare.

I wish I hadnt asked for all those things, I wish I was still a kid,
I wish I could do all those things again which I always did.

My life's a complete mess and I wonder where did it all go wrong,
I look back and I realize I am somewhere where I never belong.
