Once upon a long time
I was innocent, gullible and naive
Chirpy, bubbly and very soft as clay
I was a great source of fun and play
Soon, I was taken for granted
My innocence was exploited
When I finally did realize this,
I felt very weak and defeated
I cried in the furnaces of sorrow
My heart hardened with every teardrop
Then, in the heart of hearth I resolved to grow
Changing myself according to the life's flow
My innocence was lost in the bylanes of life
It bled away in the massacres and strife
Purity of emotions left me no solace
Isn't it wise to twist according to the life's pace?
I've to say strength has a cost,
you have to pay
Before all you know and all you
love is forever lost!

Struggles in life make you a stronger person but it also dissolves the innocent chirpiness you have!!
