I am in the home, I am aged two
Tall figures moving around outside.
I am in the school, I am aged three
Mom is sitting outside the classroom.
I am in the car, I am aged seven
People sad, crying in front of our home.
I am in the church, I am aged ten
I don’t want to go outside into the street.
I am in the senior school, I am aged fourteen
Classmates making faces from inside the classroom.
I am in the pre-university college, I am aged sixteen
I just want to run away from mathematics.
I am in the bar, I am aged seventeen
I hide myself from the crowd, elders.
I am in the university college, I am aged eighteen
Too bored to attend lecture, I escape the torture.
I am in the college hostel, I am aged nineteen
Scared, I hope the smell of weed won’t linger.
I am in the restaurant, I am aged twenty
It is raining heavily outside, I am crying.
I am in the police station, I am aged twenty one
I am waiting for the sun’s rays to find their way inside.
I am in the office, I am aged twenty two
I want to go back to college, friends.
I am in the aeroplane, I am aged twenty four
Breathtaking, I want to fly with the birds.
I am looking at you, I am now aged twenty seven
Flashbacks of the fool it seems till now
I wish to see in you, beautiful things, just before I close my eye.
