Grown Up Birthdays

Birthday was the only day of my life,

When I felt it’s time for a new beginning.

I plan to make some changes.

I plan to fix my old troubles.

I plan to take a new direction.

And still, I end up being alone on a single’s table,

Sipping my coffee and biting my sub,

Thinking of what went wrong that here I ended up.

 

As a child, my birthday was like another festival.

I would cut cakes and get gifts,

And wear colorful clothes to the school.

I may play stupid pranks or crack stupid jokes

And people still loved me.

Feeling like a prince for that day.

Even the strict PT sir wouldn’t punish me for the day

Feeling I can be the next day prey.

 

But slowly my teenage life started,

And I got bigger, my cakes got smaller.

I would meet some school friends and spend some time.

Then go meet my crush or find reasons to meet.

I still loved these new changes around me.

But now I feel something was missing.

 

I entered my twenties and I felt the change.

Hiding my birthday was my new thing.

My roomies found birthday bumps more fun

While I would nurse for three days my wounded bum.

They would wear heavy shoes just to kick me.

And give me a week full of pain that wouldn’t leave me.

 

But when my work life started,

Everything landed in the boring land.

My birthday became a regular day

And I missed my friends.

And though I grew up

I should have become more mature…

But I miss that pampering, I am still a kid for sure.

Adios,
