Sleeping cosily, in a ball i was curled,
Drifting away slowly, into the dream world.
When i was pulled out from my home,
And wrapped up in a blanket, softer than foam.
I yelled, and cried, i really was angry,
Woken up from my nap, now cold and hungry.
Why was i here?, My little brain thought,
Why away from home, had i been brought?
I was finally fed and i dozed off again,
All this crying had put upon me, a strain.
My life went on like this for an year,
Until i could finally understand quite clear.
I was now an year old, and did whatever i felt,
Anything, from tearing papers to chewing on dad’s belt.
I had many people to care for me,
After all, i was a new leaf in our family tree.
Time passed, now i could walk,
And was learning fast, how to talk.
I mostly played and slept all day,
Fed every hour, with my little bottle and tray.
I grew faster than ever,and before i knew,
I had been enrolled for something new.
School it was called, i was not the only one,
There were others like me, deprived of their freedom and fun.
My parents left me at the gate, where a man took me inside,
I felt uncomfortable,and so i cried.
I missed my home, and hated my school,
For this was the only place, which i didn’t rule.
Days , weeks and months passed,
I started to like school at last.
After all i had made some friends,
We followed our own rules and trends.
When i realised, this world is really fun
And so is my new life, that had just begun.
I have a long journey, i know,
So wish me luck, for there’s a long way to go
