“I wonder when I will grow up and live my dream.
When no one is there to stop me and I have a high self-esteem.
When I can buy pretty clothes and dine in restaurants every day.”
Said I when I was five, while under the tree I lay.
Now that I am 15, I realise life is more than just about buying clothes
It is rather about building a respectable person and self oaths
It is about choosing the right people to surround you
And choosing the right careers to pursue.
Life is surely harder at fifteen than at five
But furthermore, you have to strive
Life is about not giving up
Even though it might be abrupt.
