I was today years old

I was today years old

To understand the many unsolved mysteries

That it is okay to fail

At the things others could be champions at

That the very champions seem to envy you

For you have things they wish they had

I was today years old

To understand that the grass will always be greener on the other side

You’ve heard this often

Yet it feels like a new realisation each time

I was today years old

To know that kindles are as bad as paperbacks

That kill trees almost equally if not more

That all book lovers are also murderers of a kind

That recycled paper also kills if not saves

If you believed that trees had emotions

I was today years old

to realise

That love is about vulnerabilities

About sharing not just emotions

But smelly farts

I was today years old to figure

That best friends come without clauses

Mine came without brains too

Which often helped my case

For they didn’t know squat about judgements

They’d make excellent companions

I was today years old

To figure that everything happens for a reasons

For it is the most unreasonable moments and people

That teach the most valuable lessons

I was today years old to remember

That I switched on the light in the living room

And if I go it’ll stop my train of thoughts

For there is a fridge there which will waste my time

So off I go.
