Watermarks of the time and tide - First part

Watermarks of the time and tide! (First part to abide by the word count) --- I was born as an innocent looking baby, as everyone always is! Just a tiny cuddly body with a pure soul, with not much of wiz! Then as a faltering toddler I started my slow and waddling walk! With some more effort at finding words, I could get into small talk! The real excitement began as I turned into an ever restless child! My curiosity became insatiable and my imagination grew so wild! I felt everything was possible to achieve, just as I wanted to do! They would know I could work great wonders as soon as I grew! I questioned everything they told and challenged the folks around! To me all could have been discovered, but only if they had found! When turbulent teens dawned on me, I'd a burst of immense vigor! My mind got as sharp as a saber and I demanded proofs with rigor! When I was told what's wise to do I asked to convince me why it's so! Why should I walk all my life in a set rut, without moving too and fro? After all anyone who had discovered anything had gone a new way! Some of that was planned ahead, the rest of it was uncharted sway! I had raging and unruly emotions of love, dislike, anger, and devotion! I knew I'm the best and said so, though not intending self promotion! I learnt so much more and faster than I ever could have done before! I believed I am already a professor, not a freshman or a sophomore! With my energy exceeding my mass, my desires exceeding my time! I insisted everything I said or did had a coherent reason and rhyme! Becoming an adult tampered me down, cooling off my red-hot zeal! I realized life was a tough test for which like raw iron I must anneal! With patience reigning in my outbursts and my wisdom getting ripe! I realized my limitations and heard others' opinions without a gripe! I accepted that whatever I had learned told me so little about world! The boundaries of the unknown were boundless all said and heard! I fell in love to last forever with my life partner and my true soulmate! Not quite like the attractions before that had hovered by mental state! The essence of life was revealed to me as giving more than receiving! Standing by my loving family and dear friends, without ever deceiving!
