Knowledge no longer
Sings joyful songs in my brain
For I have over-abused
From the time I stepped
At the mouth of school

My life is no longer
Dreaming for future
Tomorrow, for my
Soul is already in the
Boat called future

My friends no longer
Call me a kid, for
Their eyes have seen
That I have now grown tall
Like Mount Kilimanjaro

My parents no longer
Call me by my first name
For I have now grown
Up into a father

My shadow no longer
Follows my body,
For it is still stuck in
The past like memories

For I am the beholder
Of my life
Everything no longer kisses
The makeup of my life

Tell us: What do you think of the piece?
