Sunday in September

They told me to decide what I wanted to do

For the rest of my life

Well before I was

Twenty-two

I could not tell you who

Decided it was a good idea

To squeeze your entire life in

Before the end of your teenage years

Before endless beers

And you’ve made mistakes

That you wish you could take back

Like deciding your future as a child

This problem is not mild

There’s a lot to consider

But we don’t have chance

It comes too soon

At a time we want to be left in our room

With no outside interference

From our elders

But they don’t care about that.

    They care more for the future than that teenage withdrawals, and as we grow, we get to know why, life and time waits for no one, but it will be better if they allow us to be children than forcefully making decisions above us.

  2. I am an elder now and I say, fuck ’em, it’s all bullshit we feed the young because we believed it when we were young. Be young, enjoy, be irresponsible (without causing harm), enjoy life and you will find what you want, really want, out of it and what to do with it. It all ends too soon.

  4. I was only 17 at my first job. All the old timers were preaching to me about putting away money now, so that by the time I retire I’ll be in pretty good shape. Oh– they were probably right. But youth isn’t ready to prepare for the far future (if it is far). We gotta sow our oats and learn the hard way. Nice post. Peace.
