When realities of life come to haunt you,
making you realize that you have fallen short of everything.

When dreams start to seem unreal,
and the only
thing that comes to matter is survival.

You can literally see yourself getting sucked in the vicious circle,
circle of sheep and crowd, which you once hated to your gut,
as it is the
only escape out of your desperate situation.

That’s when you actually start turning into an adult.

That’s when you start respecting the grown ups knowing they are not all about strength and independence,
they are not all
about smiling faces but they are also children with shattered dreams,
decided to flock in when the crisis couldn’t be contained.
