Traded off innocence for wisdom,
Grabbed unrest over serenity,
Dreamland exchanged for insomnia,
Replaced the music within with cacophony,
Sold dreams for reality,
Killed thyself for norms of sanity,
And all this for what?
Life gave choices galore,
Have opted for all the dictated ones,
Lost the rhythm to gain the momentum,
Now the poisoned self smiles with pain.
