Dear mom and dad,

Please call me back
Tell me nice things;
How to live life
and be good at that.

Tell me I should eat,
Tell me I should read;
Wake me up tomorrow,
To 9 AM, I plead.

I wonder what you're up to,
And I guess I needed to be alone
Needed to spend some time
to realise the truth about home.

The missing isn't throbbing,
but it sure is there.
How our trips to the mall,
would be with fanfare.

Growing up is a lie –
We're all already grown.
Is the test of time present
to see who lasts alone?
