Lights twinkling in the night sky
I used to wonder at them
But now sigh
As their true nature science
Revealed
And veil of happy fantasies
Peeled
Off and thrown; ridiculed
By my very (now) mature
And rational attitude

In the private room of my mind
Where my memories I do bind
Lie shattered pieces
Of childhood dreams
Along with an innocent world
Of happiness
To make room for reality
Facts, numbers and sanity
Though this new perspective
Has a beauty of its own
I miss the places
My childhood had shown

At the end of the day
There is only one lesson learnt
They say-
“Around every corner change lurks
Sorry, but that’s how life works
It’s not long before you realize
From your safe nest
That you’re spiraling
From one world to the next.”

This is a very intriguing and interesting poem. I love all of the metaphors present here and the way you easily rhyme words, weaving them together like a web. The whole concept is entrancing and it makes one rethink their life. I could easily relate to this; A job well done!
