Ontogenesis ; (biology) the process of an individual organism growing organically; a purely biological unfolding of events involved in an organism changing gradually from a simple to a more complex level

Year after year, we celebrated birthdays as a symbol of growth. Nevertheless, many regards it as another year of being older which demoted oneself from the benefit and joy of youths. Yes, it's true that as we grow older, we will have more responsibilities to take care of. But isn't responsibility is what our life is all about?

Responsibilities are always there through our whole life-span. Responsibility as a children is to play, get healthy yet don't get dirty. Although your parent may say don't get hurt, you will get hurt eventually and you'll learn the pains. Responsibility as a teenager is to study and learn more of your own strength, for that you'll decide your future undertakings. You will also get to know your weaknesses along the process. Responsibility is.. responsibility that... yeah all of us may already know what that is. Cliché isn't it?

What I'm trying to say is we have to celebrate our birthday to cherish our life, to congratulate ourselves of our maturity increment and to live to our heart content..

A teacher once said this to me "History taught one to be more judicious (Sejarah mengajar manusia menjadi bijaksana) " .

So why would we always look in the past and hope that we'll return to that state?? Returning to our younger state means that we're willing to move backwards, feel the same joy again, yet the same pain and most importantly, face our very same ignorance! Seriously, do we really need that??

Don't look back
Just remember what we've been through
And face what lies ahead
Shall we?

A Song for Mama by Boyz II Men

You taught me everything
And everything you've given me
I always keep it inside
You're the driving force in my life, yeah
There isn't anything
Or anyone that I can be
And it just wouldn't feel right
If I didn't have you by my side
You were there for me to love and care for me
When skies were grey
Whenever I was down
You were always there to comfort me
And no one else can be what you have been to me
You will always be you always will be the girl
In my life for all times
Mama, mama you know I love you
Oh you know I love you
Mama, mama you're the queen of my heart
Your love is like
Tears from the stars
Mama, I just want you to know
Lovin' you is like food to my soul
Yes it is (5x)
You're always down for me
Have always been around for me even when I was bad
You showed me right from my wrong
Yes you did
And you took up for me
When everyone was downin' me
You always did understand
You gave me strength to go on
There was so many times
Looking back when I was so afraid
And then you come to me
And say to me I can face anything
And no one else can do
What you have done for me
You'll always be
You will always be the girl in my life
Never gonna go a day without you
Fills me up just thinking of you
I'll never go a day without my mama
Yes you are

Happy birthday MOMMA!!!
