A vivid memory from when I was young,

I had a new pencil and I wanted it sharpened.

I bugged Dad to have it sharpened,

He said “wait” for he is cooking lunch.

I was stubborn, I was just a child.

So I took matters into my own hands.

With one swift swing of that sharp knife, it almost took my forefinger off.

I cried like a banshee and Dad came to me.

He treated it silently, calm as he could ever be.

When I finally stopped and looked at him, I saw tears silently falling.

That taught me the lesson of waiting.

    Hahaha , that is the way a child learns. I still remember how I was kept away from fire or a switch board by my parents but the curiosity which a child carries in his heart is so profound. At last when I got burn one day just a bit and when I allowed electric current to flow through me for a moment then I understood that they both are not good for me.
