THE TEEN REALMS (A journey thru dreams...)

I woke up to a dream,
A dream so disturbing....
Of notebooks and classrooms and teachers to pals
So much I did, only to win through the exam halls
How my dreams, suddenly turned so redundant?
And still, I could wear that smile as resplendent
Night after night, I kept closing my jaded eyes...
To dream of a hallway of fame with that prize
With thunders of applause and charms abundant
And the sight of an oasis, beyond the sand

The transition was soar, like never before
My happiness quotient, now defined by scores
Spells of envy had quietly been seeded,
We would say - 
We are friends, when we actually competed
Where did it come from, how could it brew?
My dreams were clueless, just like me and you

I was traveling cities, had to beat some shit
‘To compete, to be....never should I quit’
I slept with eyes open for the board's score beat
Only to wake up amidst, my summer retreat

That innocence had sublimed, I was a frantic spirit
Exit "Adolescence", I had grown up to be a misfit
