I started learning with my first breath,
And I will keep learning till my death.
I learnt to talk, walk and play,
I grew up with lessons day by day.
It was fun while I was a kid,
Nobody judged me by what I did.
Now that I have grown up,
Learning is getting really tough.
I learnt to spread love around,
But Love left me broken down.
I learnt to make people smile,
But lost myself for a little while.
I learnt to help the needy ones,
But they shot me back with the guns.
I learnt to pray and live for others,
And that’s how I got into troubles.
I learnt to never hurt them back,
But all these times I got whacked.
I am collecting myself and starting a new,
I need to learn to get it through.
I am learning to put myself first,
I am learning to doubt and not to trust,
I am learning to be careless and free,
“A good soul” I don’t want to be.
I am learning not to empathize,
I am learning to lie and keep things inside.
I am learning to play the adult games,
I am learning to burn into flames.
I am learning to make my life better,
I don’t care if someone else is scattered.
I might be wrong but that’s what I learnt,
I played with fire and I got burnt.
I lost my self and my sanity,
In the field of love and humanity.
I am learning to get back on my legs,
Because learning is a never ending process.
