Grow Up
(16 April 1918 – 27 February 2002 / Ahmednagar)

Grow Up

Put whole self in, shook about
Never was there any doubt
Crossed too many lines
Ignored all of the signs

Now here I sit
Wondering why
Didn't somebody tell me
Go ahead, cry

It won't get you anywhere
Escape is not near
Really look in that mirror
It's time...

This is a strange one- -I can think straightaway of four scenarios that could fit this. Sometimes it is good to have to ferret out the meaning for ourselves
'I was sentenced to life without her' speaks about the need of somebody for life without whom life becomes more difficult than death.Every word carries a lot meaning -very nice one.
Strange trial! ! Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
The poem creates a very poignant atmosphere where the protagonist has been struck by a tragedy to be alone for life without his beloved. Limited words having great impact. Thanks.
Brilliant poem with many interpretations.
