    Poem

    Somewhere between
    “ 8 toffees for 1 rupee”
    and
    “1 toffee for 8 rupees”,
    we grew up!

    Somewhere between
    “Ground mein aaja”
    and
    “Online aaja”,
    we grew up!

    Somewhere between
    “stealing chocolate of our sister”
    and
    “Buying chocolate for her children”,
    we grew up!

    Somewhere between
    “Just five more mins Mummy ”
    and
    “Pressing the snooze button”,
    we grew up!

    Somewhere between
    “Crying out loud just to get what we want”
    and
    “Holding our tears when we are broken inside”,
    we grew up!

    Somewhere between
    “I want to grow up”
    and
    “I want to be a child again”,
    we grew up!

    Somewhere between
    “Lets meet and plan”
    and
    “Lets plan and meet”,
    we grew up!

    Somewhere between
    "Being afraid of our parents"
    and
    "Praying for our parents"
    we finally grew up

    And
    as we grew up, we realize;
    How silently, our lives have changed...
