One tiny feet, a giant leap for me


 Trifextra Week 75 challenge wanted us to write 33 of our best words. These are mine – to my children.
My children inspire me to do more. Being so non-ambitious, I would have gone no where without my parents pushing me to study. Later in life, for my children I want to explore every possibility, every talent within me so that I can inspire them to do the same. They have transformed me from a laid back (exact translation - lazy) non adventurous non experimental (kind of a dry leaf on the mercies of wind-blown where ever) existence to taking the reins in my own hands.


Tossing away self doubts
Push myself to places higher
I pretend to be an adult
But I don’t know the way any better
Come, lay your tiny feet
On wobbly grounds of life.

  1. I love the line, "I pretend to be an adult" - something I've been doing for such a long time!

    1. Me too :-) sometimes I guess I run away from real adults because I can't let them discover the truth!

  6. Chronological maturity is often defied in the mind.

    Wonderfully honest and lucid.
