"When I grow up I want to be a little boy."
- Joseph Heller -
When I was a kid, a little bit spoiled and sometimes shy, I wanted to grow up. I wanted to be able to have my say and that ADULTS listen to me. Though I wasn't even sure what I was trying to express with those childish and senseless words.
When I was a bit older, rebellious and all, I wanted to be able to make my own decisions and be responsible for the consequences. Though I did not even realise what I was bounded to face when trouble arises, and that the one that is going to bear the full responsible for my actions is going to be an ADULT.
Now that I've grown. There's all the chance for me to talk. There's all the opportunities waiting for me to decide and lay my foot upon. But I just want to go back to being a kid. Because
"Trying to grow up is hurting...... You make mistakes. You try to learn from them, and when you don't, it hurts even more."
- Aretha Franklin -
