You don’t really become an adult at eighteen.
What you become is scared little girl in big girl shoes,
Expected to make decisions that impact the rest of your life.
(Or at least that’s what I became).
When they tell you to make the choice that defines your life’s path,
Tell them you are not ready.
Take your time little one.
There is time for you to be a responsible adult,
But your youthful innocence is quickly fading.
