As People Grew Older

Rating: 5.0


As people grew older
Gifts inside them grow
But they never agree to show
Dreams are chasing one another

As they grew older
Old dreams are leaving their mind
For their gifts are good, better and kind
Dreams are killing one another


Before they grew older
They have failed to see in the light
They let their gifts left their sight
'Your gift is only your talent ', said their mother

Then they grew older
In raising their arrow, trying to shoot high
As they shot one, the rest started to fly
Dreams are chasing one another

The more they grew older
They notice changes in thier faces
In search of the astray dreams, they went to places
In search of their gifts, they became stronger

As they grew older, there dreams are going farther
They realized that for failures there is no excuse
The dreams they shot, they promise not to abuse
As I
As they grew older, things are becoming tougher


As people grew older
They abandon their dreams and plan to survive
For them, the best thing is to be alive
Dreams are chasing one another

As some grew older
They put their trust in their heir
Because life isn't fair
But dreams kill another

As they grew older
Theycease to feel taste
Some dreams will surely waste
For them not to kill another
