This Is My Story - by Unfathomd.
When I was a kid, I believed in myths,
Today, I think of those days I missed.
I believed in ghosts, I believed in ghouls,
No matter, how bright the day shined,
I still needed light.

Was there a time I kept my tooth,
Under the pillow in search of truth.
Things that I had heard of the tooth fairy,
who'd exchange for gifts that were lovely.

Time passed and I started to grow,
Life taught me lessons I need to know.
Some were cool, while some were a blow,
I learnt not much, during that show.

Again, time took me to my teenage years,
That was the time of my cheers and tears.
I started questioning the things around me,
Wanted to break the chains that bound me.

Sixteen, I started giving thought to my looks,
and stopped attending to my school textbooks.
It was not surprising that my grades were abyss,
because I lived more on that celestial bliss.

Now, I'm eighteen and I guess I'm different,
no more am I fascinated with the distant.
I dunno whether time would teach me more,
Because no one knows, what it has in store.
