Atlast We Grew Up

Somewhere between

"5 toffees for 1 rupee" and

"1 toffee for 5 rupees", we grew up.


Somewhere between

"Come to the park" and

"Come online", we grew up.


Somewhere between

"Where's mom ?" and

"Mom, I'll be a little late. Please don't wait for me", we grew up.


Somewhere between

"Alpenliebe's lollipop" and

"Fererro Rocher", we grew up.


Somewhere between

"Waking up before sunrise" and

"Snoozing the alarm for five minutes more", we grew up.


Somewhere between

"I want to grow up" and

"I want to be a child again" we grew up.


Somewhere between

"A glass full of milk" and

"A cup of cold coffee", we grew up.


Somewhere between

"A for apple, B for ball" and

"(a+b)²", we grew up.


Somewhere between

"Morning prayers" and

"Friday night parties", we grew up.


Somewhere between

"Bedtime stories" and

"One more episode, then I'll go to sleep",

We grew up.


Somewhere between

"Fairy tales" and

"The Avengers", we grew up.


Somewhere between

"Crying aloud to get what we want" and

"Crying in the rain when we were broken inside", we grew up.


Somewhere between

"Playing snakes in parent's Nokia" and

"Playing candy crush in our own smartphones", we grew up.


Somewhere between

"Getting scared of darkness" and

"Sitting alone in the darkness", we grew up.


Somewhere between

"Narrating every incident to mom" and

"Keeping things to ourselves", we grew up.


Somewhere between

"Writing" and "Typing", we grew up.


Somewhere between

"Playing with toys" and

"Playing with emotions", we grew up.


Somewhere between

"Swinging up and down in see-saw" and

"Swinging between life's highs and lows", we grew up.


Somewhere between

"Why bother" and "Try harder", we grew up.


Somewhere between

"Friend circles" and "Dark circles", we grew up.


Somewhere between

"Running outside to see an airplane with smile" and

"Leaving home to board a plane with tears in eyes", we grew up.


Somewhere between

"Stargazing nights" and

"Homework completion deadlines", we grew up.


Somewhere between

"Broken pencils" and

"Erased dreams", we grew up.


As we grew up

We realized,

No more we have the heart of a child,

To sleep every night carefree,

And live each day wild,

Now it's time to

Erase the traces of childhood

Elevating this manhood.
