It Really Doesn't Matter

It really doesn't matter if we kept awake all night; admired the stars till the last beam of moonlight,

It really doesn't matter if we rubbed squalid tomato's on our uniforms; winked at each other in the classroom,

It really doesn't matter if we drove the car at full speeds; forgetting completely to stop at traffic intersections,
 
It really doesn't matter if we pummeled the walls; screamed at the top of our voices when we actually had to loads of homework,

It really doesn't matter if we hurled eggs at people on the street; blurted a volley of indiscriminate slang at those trying to control us,

It really doesn't matter if we swam on dolphins in the sea; splashing tones of froth on the ships passing by,

It really doesn't matter if we counted the notes wrong; tore the shopping list into pieces before actually purchasing it,

It really doesn't matter if we bathed in pure ice-cream; didn't wipe our face for
hours on the trot,

It really doesn't matter if we stared at the walls; sat lazily swapping flies even in brilliant afternoon,

It really doesn't matter if we shaved of our scalp; danced in a pool of scarlet jelly with the clouds coming in,

It really doesn't matter if we dug the earth; rubbed worms traversing under the soil on our cheeks,

It really doesn't matter if we slapped the postman hard; then tried hard to suppress our giggles as he ran at us full speed; with his stick,

It really doesn't matter if we drank a bottle full of whisky; flirted around dreamily on the busy streets,

It really doesn't matter if we took out our tongues; scowled at our neighbors for not allowing us to play,

It really doesn't matter if we left a battalion of red ant; to roam freely beneath our teachers desk,

It really doesn't matter if we didn't brush our teeth; ran on the roads with our night clothes on,

It really doesn't matter if we caught crabs on the beach; instead of attending formal parties with our parents,

It really doesn't matter if we didn't sit for a moment; kept fidgeting around; once in a while sipping cola and food,

It really doesn't matter if we pinched our sister; teased her as she tried to learn the
bicycle,

It really doesn't matter if we set on to conquer Mount Everest; without even equipping ourselves with a single coat,

It really doesn't matter if we ate our breads burnt gruesomely black; wore our
shoes without embroidered socks,

It really doesn't matter if we dreamt wildly even in commercial meetings; said i Love you; when the man sitting opposite was questioning us about our yearly income tax,

It really doesn't matter if we played pranks with our aunt; presenting her with a balloon that burst into infinite pieces; instead of a chocolate cake on her birthday,

It really doesn't matter if we spoke lies to save our skins; scampered at electric speeds at the mention of studies,

It really doesn't really matter if we didn't wash our hands; tore apart raw chunks of fruit with our uncivilized teeth,

It really doesn't matter if we didn't comb our hair; grew a beard as long as the elephants trunk,

And it really doesn't matter if we lived life at ease; basking in the glory of every moment to unleash,

As we were so young now; floating on the island of pure ecstasy; and had a thousand tomorrow's left; to really make it matter.
