21 BEAUTIFUL POEMS WRITEN BY Ms URVI KOCHHAR , from the author There is this very big problem with growing up -we don't realize when we cross that fine line and outgrow instead of growing. Growing is a part of life; it is natural so to say. But this phenomenon is defined in absolutely different ways by different people. My neighbour had his first correspondence with the tooth fairy... a fourteen-year-old had her menarche... somebody just got their driver's license... another one just drank the hidden booze. My friend got into the college of his dreams and well, they all grew up! And as far as I am concerned, I am still trying to figure it out.We all have certain connotations about the different stages of life, certain milestones that mark their ends and beginnings. Well, I am just seventeen. People say that the time when you step into this world all by yourself is not far. My head and ambitions quite know when that is going to happen, but my heart just does not want to accept it. A little more time... a little more time... if only I had a little more time. But you know what's the best part, no matter what happens, I still grow up. What I have realized is that it is not so important to define what defines growing. Because when we do so, we spoil the whole process of growing. So yeah, I am growing everyday and learning too. This enormous thing you are reading is my first ever brand- new poetry book, right from my heart to yours. Enormous, because this amalgamation touches everything from life to after life and from love to pride. And of-course it tells how much I have grown XD. So, are you ready for a bumpy ride?
