Okenye (Grownups)


       When I was a child, I  sat down to listen to GrownUps..

I was like a recording device, all clean and new. Whatever they had to say seemed fine with me.

           I realized quickly that these words weren’t passed down to me because they had the time.When the pang of regret came, I was always invited to the feast or summoned i recall self. Really a sight to see.

I’m throwing the feast this time, and my guest list is short. In fact it comprises of just one name.

Come ! Sit! 

This is the debut!

You wouldn’t want to miss it!

        Now you are telling me that you are a grownup?! And so what ..

It might seem pathetic but everyone that mattered disappeared before I could do this. I wouldn’t want to dish to anybody?!

        Now I see, I was a child and my attention was for grabs abi?! You think you have nothing to learn from mine.

How special do I have to make this feast? When it was your turn you just dished out and I ate,even the make-believe food;I gobbled it down.

        You have no choice ; you must attend this feast! Ahah.GrownUps!
