When Did We Grow Up?

When did we grow up?

When did childhood dreams

become our reality?

It feels like just yesterday

we were kids just talking

about what we wanted to do

with the rest of our lives

and now we’re adults.

We have real jobs.

We have to pay bills.

We have actual responsibilities.

Where did time go?

When did we grow up?



I am Standing Still

The clock is ticking.

It’s working against me.

I am standing still

but time is moving on.


Others walk past me,

achieving their life goals.

I am standing still.

I am going nowhere.


The future is near

And I don’t have a plan.

I am standing still.

I am falling behind.


Minutes become days.

And the days become weeks.

I am standing still.

Life is passing me by.
