The Adult-Child Complex
These sidewalks once paved
In golden opportunities and silver linings,
Show their ugly face behind beautiful wings.
Oh adulthood, as much as I’ll miss this love affair
I need no more than to prepare.
The opportunity of going falling back
Overcomes the fear of losing the respect of my peers
For their expectations will then be too low to hear.
Here my future is locked in place
But in green pastures I find the public option.
Surely the good outweighs the bad?
For freedom is freedom
If given in one it must be in the other
For borderlines are remaining intact while my nerves on the other hand…
This is the best option for my future.
