A battle between my feelings and my dreams!

Here's something I tried to write when hostel life tended to irritate me sometimes...
Having to stay away from home, how do u think I feel?
Some say its really hectic, some say its no big deal!!
Saying is one thing and living is another
When every small thing abt home comes to bother!
I Miss my mom n I miss my dad
Miss them whn things are good, or when they go really bad
Miss them when m happy or when am drowned in tears
Miss them through my phases of overcoming fears.
I Miss my brother who taught me what to do and what not to!
Anything big or small, he got me through
Never gave a second thought on how things were to be done
Although we used to fight like ' huh! we are done!!'
But All he could care about was how i could have more fun!
I miss my sister.."I love you, you were there for me, you protected me, and most of all, you loved me. We’d fight, scream, and argue, but, under it all, is a love. That only exists inside us!"
A very small family, all staying apart
Parents would just want us to come out being more smart!
But success tastes like nothin when they aren't around
Only empty happiness all around is found !
I wanna get back, get back to them and say
I love you mom and in ur arms i wanna stay?
"What will i do with the sucess without having my people around to cherish it "
I miss having you around and yes I really miss it !!
They call it being practical but i call it unfair;
Enough of lying on bed with the same white ceiling to stare
I want my mom's lap and my brother's teasing to bother me !
I wanna get back to being a bird filled with life and who is free !
A family is what matters the most to me
And that is exactly how i want it to be :)
But somewhere deep inside mah heart
I promise dem everyday..
that the efforts which they make..will never let them slay!
and I'll definately come out with flying colours one day!
