Late 20’s ..

Its wired this poem is titled late 20’s
As I feel so ancient just by writing it
Still enjoying and happily cruising along
When I graduated all eyes were on
With hope and confidence that
Someone they thought I was about to be
Suggestions were free which people loved to share
But I knew if I listened I could reach no where
Some thought they could achieve their unfulfilled dreams through me
Some dumped their experience upon me
All I wanted is a normal chilled out conversation
But I was handed over list of do’s and don’ts
After passing through their careful observations
I knew I had shattered their hopeful expectations
They never knew a lot was going around in my life
It was very tough pretending to be nice
With heart breaks and heart aches
With success and failures
With my ever fluctuating mood swings
My mood and music were suddenly best friends
All thanks to my beautiful ex-girlfriends
Reaching Mid 20’s felt like an antique product
Ready to be displayed and auctioned to the best buyer
Everyone said it was right time to settle down
And there were loud sirens in my head
Forcing me to stay under ground
Instead of receiving pay-checks my postbox was flooded with invitation cards
Suddenly I found myself attending several marriages
Seeing happy face I was little stressed out
Not because I wasn’t the one getting hooked up
But realizing everything was so messed up
Now being in late 20’s feels more relieved
Officially being termed hopeless and disappointment
Lost my hair and gained a little weight
Happy doing 9 to 6 job with good pay and less savings
Playing with kids of my friends
And give them some wired life lessons
Love reading books and writing poems
Tattoo on my arm and still more to come
Living my life with experiences of my own
As I have grown from a boy to a man
An important question to be asked
To all those who felt I was a disappointment
What do you call a guy?
Who is single
Loves animals
Like reading books
Write poems which rarely rhymes
Has sense of humour
Who loves 3 B’s
Budweiser , blenders and bacardi
Believes in karma
Hates religion
Loves God
And respect the fact that it’s just one life we have
And who will be forever faithful to the one fact
That you all should remember
I don’t give a shit about what you think of me
Damm I am in my late 20’s
And I shall live it in a awesome way
So what does that make me?
Keep judging who cares
