Growing Up

Growing up has its ups…
Would dress up like all those pretty aunts
Look “dressed for the occasion”…
Just so perfect.
Maybe would successfully cover up
All flaws with a dash (or loads) of make-up.
Not all but some of them atleast.

Growing up has its ups…
Would be a part of all girlie stuff and
Even some elderly stuff.
Feel all important even if we
Are discussing about the ‘n’ number
Of guys in the world and their cuteness.
Not realizing cute means ‘ugly but adorable’.

Growing up has its ups…
Would earn, take care of the family
Get a chance – to boss over in the process
And to take things for granted
And to complain how tough life is…
And to smile less, carry the heavy burden of anger, grudge, jealousy
And to live life less…and to ask ‘why me?’
And to regret …to bear with a grin….

Growing up has its ups…
Won’t be satisfied with lesser joys…
Need for growth will be the driving force.

Growing up is all about growth.
Growing up is all about making a new you.
Made-up, trivial, lifeless, ambitious and progressing…
