20 years, too many a year for me to become a man. Too long to live in a life of self obession, too long being the child fighting not to grow up, too long to rebel agaisnt order, too long for allowing the prejudice to seethe, too long to fail to see what is important, too long to discover the faults within myself.

20 years, too short for the memories to fade, too short to learn from my mistakes, too short to break away from habits that die hard, too short to find out what i really want from my life, too short to see the beauty of the world, too short for me to understand.

20 years of my life looking back, its been a rocky and twisty journey. And yet i would not have traded it for the life of any. Maybe i should have treated the people around me better, and yet if i had not had these valuable lessons learnt, i would never have seen the faults i had within me.

20 years may be too long for some lessons to be learnt, but i have another 20 years to right them and to learn from them.
