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.

Undesired Trait

Look at the stars,
Look how they smile at you,
Look at your hands,
Look how they yearn for them,
They were all too far,
To grasp in your palms

Look at the skies,
Look how it covers for you,
Look at your deeds,
Look how you’ve left em undone,
They were all yours,
To do on your own

Look at the mirror,
Look how it shows through you,
You were so full of ideas,
But you never saw them through

Now you are screaming out,
Cause you are unfinished,
Now you are crying out,
Wishing you had done them though
Ain’t it too late now,
For you to repent now,
For the time that you’ve lost,
Ain’t never coming back

Look at the code,
Look how it runs so well,
You were better than that,
When you were just yourself,
Now you can’t do just half,
Of what seemed too simple

Look at the pics,
Look how well they’re done,
You could’ve done the same,
If you kept pursuing,
But you dropped off at half,
Cause you felt its not for you

Why do I have,
This trait I don’t desire,
Why can’t I change,
Myself from falling out,
While at the half way point,
Doing my job
