Adolescence(A short poem).
Through a clouded pair of spectacles
You begin to seek life.
Before you know what's out there.
Before you know your minds eye.
You live in the now
and forget what's ahead.
You make impulse decisions,
and your common sense you shed.
No responsibilities for anything at all.
Family and money mean very little
of which you see no more.
Just living on your instinct
to do what you see fit..
Knowing whatever you come across
will not bother you not one bit.
You float like a feather.
through your teenage life.
You swim only in the deep end
forever rolling the dice.
You regard nothing as your own,
including your many mistakes.
You give me your words and promises
of which I know you that you will break.
Your world spins at a 100 miles per hour,
yet you do not get travel sick.
My only wish for you my love
is that something finally clicks.
That you find what it is you are looking for,
So you can settle down.
I hope you get your train on track
and learn to swim before you drown..
The life I always dreamt for you,
The one where it's destination was clear.
The life in which you will pick for yourself
I hope not one that I will fear.
