Almost Twins

on

You cried your first cry,
Two months later I followed.
You started crawling,
Seeing you, I started trying.

 
You started walking,
Slowly, I followed you.
I was always better at talking,
I totally overtook you.

 
You were a friend I was stuck with,
Even when you stole my toys.
And your stupid biting habit,
I just had to deal with it.
 
All your dresses were mine,
Mine hardly ever fit you.
We were the mischievous two,
Eager to be grown-ups too.
 
All the freedom we’d have,
Oh, how we craved that!
Little did we know,
Growing up also meant…

 
Bhai tikas without you,
Birthdays without you,
Weekends without you,
Priorities screwing us two.
 
Can we please be kids again?
Screw all this stupid freedom,
And all the crazy responsibilities.
I’d choose you any day!

 
Let’s build pillow forts once again,
Throw food on people’s head,
Lock a man outside the window,
And beat the crap out of other cousins.

    Gorgeous. I think we all wish this. When young we want to grow up and once grown up we wish we were children again……😊

      True… As kids we see all the cool things grown-ups do, we never realise their responsibilities, mental pressure and everything else… 😬

  5. This was so cute!! 💙

    That is fascinating, to be ‘almost twins’. Can I ask how this happened?

    Actually, I was taking it too literally probably, with the “Two months later I followed.”, lol.

    But amazingly, this does sometimes happen through modern medicine!
