Just like you

I was born a baby,
Full of little pranks,
Doing random stuff,
To be the star on spotlight,
Just like you

When I grew up,
I was sent to pre-school,
Teachers taught me something,
From alphabets to numbers,
Just like you

Further down the lane,
I was still the boy,
Running through the corridors,
Hopping over benches,
Slinging little pebbles,
Just like you

Then came the big break,
And I got shifted,
All the ties broken,
In an alien environment,
I was left begging,
To end this hostility

Years kept on rolling,
Time flew by,
I had lost some senses,
But I accustomized,
For I just adapted,
To my surroundings,
Just like you

People who would see me,
Would never recognize me,
But that never bothered me,
Cause neither did I,
Somewhere along the shady path,
I lost my sociability

I’ll never get to know,
How I would’ve turned out,
If things weren’t this rough

I ain’t blaming you,
Neither any of you,
For how I turned out,
There’s either me to blame,
Or dump it all on fate,
Just like you

Fast forward to life now,
Skipping some important bits,
I find myself,
Somewhere in between phases,
The lost and the loosing self

I could be happy,
I could be sad,
I could look around,
See a better life,
Or a more complex one,
Just like you

The choice is always yours,
Do what you want to,
If it goes smooth,
All be well,
If it doesn’t go well,
I’ll just blame fate,
Just like you.
