The Lost Kid

We are all kids inside wrapped in a veil
Of maturities and responsibilities
Not to be judged and looked upon,
Appreciated and accepted we need to feel!

Oh! Mistakes! – I should not make any,
And failures – there shouldn’t be many.
Do people like me? Do I look good?
Be accepted – oh I simply should!

All the gossip groups and talks,
I have to definitely be a part of!
But wait! Let me wrap myself first
With my ego – let’s settle that thirst!

Yes, I have been hurt and played with,
And boundaries and walls I have built around,
Trespassers will be prosecuted,
This is no longer a myth!

My past experiences define me now,
Oh, I am afraid to open up anymore;
I really can’t let go of it,
I just don’t know how!

The playful kid that resides inside,
Has been shoved aside and forgotten,
The one who was open to new things,
Sits in the corner feeling rotten!
