Dear Mom & Dad,
Am just a kid trying to escape this golden cage of yours and I write not cause you have done nothing for me, but cause it’s time that I do something for myself.
Its not that I don’t love you or that I don’t respect you, but I think it’s time you should know that, this kid is a kid no more, like every other kid I have been hiding behind the facades of your overly protection for too long and yearn for my freedom.
No I don’t wanna escape from the reality , it’s just that the hands which raised me up all along till now are the only thing which are pulling me down. I can’t rise above to become what I want to, cause whatever I see, you refuse to believe. You say that you have experience , but times have changed and the world which you lived in is the world which no longer ceases to exist.
Time changes people they say and I am sorry to say but this house no longer feels like home. It’s time that i face the world alone without any restraints on my own. I can’t bear the rules any longer, cause I am a kid no more.
It’s s not that i don’t love you, but i love my life and my future more. I have been broken and bent,stuck reversely in a time that mends . I wanna live on my own and I wanna run on my own, and love the things I own . Just let me go, cause I don’t wanna be your hero, I wanna walk this road of life with everyone else. I don’t wanna be a big man, I wanna live happily like everyone else.
I am not yours am afraid to say cause I was born a free man in this gratefully heavenly place. You have stood by me when I needed you the most but it’s time, it’s time for you to let go. I can’t no longer hide behind the overprotective shadows of your days, cause i crave , yes I do crave for my own wordly place.
For how long will I walk behind you, holding your hands like a fool, you know it’s time cause you know am growing old , but how long will you hold on to something that wants to let you go ?
These are my nights and my days, i have nothing to give nothing to take, i thank you for all you have ever done, but trust me it’s time for you to fade.
Your lost son.
PS:- this hurts cause it hurts really bad when I write this but there is no denying the bittersweet truth.
