As a child:
Things, looking at them with amusement.
People, with admiration...
As beautiful as they are fantastic.
As a teenager,
Things, "I like that"
"I want that" as i do not know the
difference between need and want.
People, dreaming of what i want to be
"what and who am I
when grow up?
or "when will I have my say?"
As a young adult:
Things, became obsessed with it.
Never thinking of the future.
Cannot be left alone in a store
as I tend to grab whatever is there.
What a waste of resources...
People, do not bother me at all.
I care for what I want to grab and
At thirty five:
Things, OMG! I have all the waste
All the garbage
stocked everywhere in the house.
People, looking at them with insecurity.
Those people that I admire most
and peers seems so big that not
even my two eyes can take a look
of their whole being,
Even just their picture.
And I feel so small compared to them.
And 6 years after,
Things, well! Not too late,
Finally able to define needs and wants,
And it is making life easy and comfy.
Learned that they are not the most important things.
People, ahhh so much to say.
Sad to see the young who are experiencing
What i had been through.
Making the same mistakes.
Hoping they too will wake up one day
That it is not to late to change life and lifestyle.
Happy to see myself getting close to what I want and need
and close to what they have
Referring to those who i have been admiring when i was young.
Not as big as them, but,
good enough for what I dreamed of then.
