I Am Grown Up Man - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

I am grown up man with all the responsibilities
Time to show its worth with talent and capabilities
No one later on should blame me for not trying
I know there is no use over split milk with crying

“Childhood is far better than this age” I argued
But you can’t remain inclined and possessively viewed
“Life is meant for change” I endorsed
Life is thrust and needs to be forced

What a struggle to keep on with situation!
Feet sometimes crumble with its continuation
Yet inbuilt confidence makes determined effort
Nothing can prevent us from reaching to port

This transformation from childhood to young age
Makes me to wonder and think about strength to manage
How there was absolutely nothing on the blank page!
And now it is full of golden letters to guess

There is enough of skill as god gift in all the insects
Everybody reacts to the situation and reasonably act
The meaning of life is understood and certainly pursued
Often the course is altered and constantly reviewed

Means and achievements are inter related
It lands you in trouble if not understood and over rated
It has to be precision guided and to the spot
The result is on expected lines and certainly brought

I was made to under understand about hazards
What precaution should be taken when looking forward?
Life and death should never be thought over in mid stream
Goal must be pursued even if could not form the team

Life was proving to be deep and wide ocean
It is very much difficult to stay and come clean
Since I was very much part of the race
I got to swim over and reach the shore in any case

Life teaches us to hold together and ward of the crisis
There is so much thrust and laid down emphasis
Sometimes we may err and some times meet the success
Still it is not roses of bed and required good chase

I may have enough of time to assess what I did
What was to be done in time and agreed?
Yet it will not absolve me from the complete blame
Life time chance should have been picked as it came
