Join a school, wear uniforms, adhere to the system, have a time table,
Study subjects you don't understand, then have arcane knowledge
you dont know how you can use
Have your meals, don't drop the gravy on the shirt, knees off the table,
Wear pretty clothes, try and like them, try and make your friends jealous of them
Find joys of passive entertainment, discuss video games with friends,
Find heroes, find ghosts, laugh over moving pictures about falling anvils and booby traps
Find joys in collecting coloured pieces of paper with dried glue on the back
Derive fun out of kicking around round objects with your feet
And beating round leather covered objects with wooden sticks
Experience raging hormones, figure out what to do about them,
Try and find social acceptance with what numbers you have on your marksheet
Worry over what bike you drive to college, Or which Nokia you put your ears to
Think about the clothes you wear, or the kind of people you hang out with,
Not necessarily in the same order
Experience peer pressure, experience the weight of expectations, none of them your own
Fall in love, fall on your face, fall on your knees, experience disgrace
Have a religion, pray to stones that don't speak, believe in forces that you cannot see
Still somehow believe in them, and those powers that be
Pass out from college, think about the future,
Think about post graduate education, think corporate,
Think about your first pay check, think about your first car
Think about getting married, having a family and a nice cozy home
Think about kissing butt, think about doing people favours to get ahead
Think what life really means!
Understand if honest is better or is screwing over people for gains?
Have ambitions, have plans, have hopes, have ideas
Have heartbreaks, have obstacles, have despair, suffer from thoughlessness
Feel what it is like to be stabbed in the back, feel what it is like to have a heartache
Come to know what it feels like to be a part of this world; experience realisation
Control your diet, don't have a heart attack, watch the shampoo,
Your hair line could be receding. Your mobile might be giving you cancer.
Your TV could be straining your eyes, and your PC might be giving you a bad back
Waste time with unknown strangers over the net, render Geography meaningless,
Fly to places, travel by wheels that pollute the atmosphere, grow old faster
So why don't we simply eat, sleep, excrete, procreate and just die?!
Everything else in between is so unnecessarily complicated!
