Aren’t we too old for that?

We get mad at them

for something that they did twenty years ago

Aren’t we too old for that?

 

We weep out loud

To let people know that we are not ok

Aren’t we too old for that?

 

We stretch our arms wide open

With joy for the world to shine through our smiles

Aren’t we too old for that?

 

We open up our hearts

Without calculating the weightage of our words

Aren’t we too old for that?

 

Sit and stare at the fountain for hours

Thinking about the endless water flow rather than our endless bills

Aren’t we too old for that?

 

We hide behind the curtains of our massive drawing rooms

Just because we are scared of the monster

Aren’t we too old for that?

 

When we chase fireflies

Feeling magical on this desolated land

Aren’t we too old for that?

 

 

 

We become our own superheroes

Over the years pretending to be one…

 

now… aren’t we old enough for that?
