“Age is just a number, maturity is a choice.”
I hate it when people tell me to grow up.
I hate it when people tell me to mature already.
You’re 16, act like a 16 year old.
Not like a 10 year old.
I love to laugh at stupid things and watch kids movies.
You consider me immature but honey….
I’m wise enough to know when to be immature and when to be mature.
You in the other hand? All you know is “maturity”.
But oh damn, if maturity is being like you then I hope that I never grow up.
Like yeah I know I will grow up, get a job, get married, have kids blah blah blah.
I know I will have to pay the bills someday.
But don’t get me wrong, just because I’m how I am doesn’t mean I ain’t responsible.
It’s okay to have fun sometimes but of course with responsibility.
Ya see? I ain’t as immature as you think!
There are many many more years before I have to worry about that.
It’s just that you don’t understand.
That some people just never grow up.
Some people stay young at heart, let them stay like that.
Because some people just don’t accept to grow up.
They all have their reasons, some didn’t get to enjoy their childhood, some are tired of always doing the same things, others well, they just simply embrace it forever.
And I think that’s very beautiful.
I know that I will get old, it has to happen.
But that doesn’t mean that I have to grow old along with my age.
The beauty in never growing up, is something unique.
Since many people grow up to be like the rest.
But others choose to stay evergreen.
Others choose to go back just for a few hours, but that’s okay.
There is never a wrong time to go back.
Old at sight, but young at heart.
So please, let me be how I am.
Let me believe in my “crazy unrealistic dreams that will never happen”.
I don’t say anything about you, so why should you say anything about me?
Youth is not just a time in life, youth is a trait that only a few people still want to carry around.
If you meet someone like me, why does that person annoy you?
I don’t understand.
I don’t understand why there is so much hatred in this world.
So much criticism, so much hate, so much frustration, so much negativity.
But ya see, that is another one of the beauties in never growing up.
Because we don’t understand those things….
and it’s best not to.
Hope you enjoyed this post. 🙂 Remember that it is never too late to go back and have some fun or whatever you want to do that you think that you can’t because you’re “old “. But of course remember to not forget about being responsible and your responsibilities as well, I don’t really have much to worry about other than school but maybe you do so just keep that in mind! Other than that, have fun and enjoy yourself…because you only live once. And no, I ain’t afraid of responsibilities or aging or all of that stuff nah, they will throw a rock at my face one day yes they will I cannot lie, but eh. I’m childish so yeah I don’t really give two
fucks about it for now.
Now, can you pass me my juice box?
