Poem about life struggles

I will walk with you and face the surprises on the way

Life, why did you betray me like this?
The journey we began together was so simple and pure
Why did you change your attitude with such speed?
Now I must stress my mind about everything
I have to study very hard, so in life I can succeed

You used to say you were peaceful and calm?
We used to spend most of our time fooling around
Picking beautiful daisies and rolling in dirt
Today you muttered to me that: ‘life can be a vicious combat’
I could get trampled on, used and very hurt

I don’t understand why you used to declare:
‘Everyone is your friend, you have no enemies
No need to judge people they are all so kind’
Now you say: ‘Be careful who you hang around with’.
That’s another damn thing to worry my mind!

You made our journey seem so simple and amusing
But now it’s beginning to get harder by the day
You fooled me before, now you dare to lie
But, I will walk with you and face the surprises on the way
And be independent, strong, and happy until I die
