Coming of Age


In 18 years
My life seems to be almost over
In just 18 years
My future looks me in the eye
As does everyone else
Where do you want to go?
Why are you doing that?
What do you want to be?
The answer will always be
I want to be 18 years old
Just as I am now
Without you in my ear

Explanation: This is a perfect description of how I feel now, everyone asking where I am going and what I am doing. It’s stressful and it’s my life now. I wanted to describe the way I feel today, caring too much about my future when I just turned 18.
