Facing life once again

let-the-light-shine-through

flying inside the realms of my mind
i got lost in the neverland,
living life
with carefree joy;

nothing lasts forever
not even happiness
in this tiny planet
that we call home;

my happiness was shortlived
the moment i was forced to grow up
from a happy go lucky child
into an adult overnight;

travelling through the maze of time
i fell asleep
halfway through
what’s supposed to be
important part of the journey (of life);

got distracted a bit
got bored a lot
eventually my eyes
did the ultimate trick;

as i slowly woke up
from this slumber
i realized a good couple of years
had passed without me knowing;

life must have been so mundane
and uninteresting, that i must
have failed to notice
time slowly and quitely drifting past;

trying to reclaim what i lost
is a futile exercise,
no point in reliving the life
that i have foregone;

as dawn approached, realizing
i needed to do something fast,
i slowly opened all the windows
and let the light shine through;
