Living in My Own World

Living in my own world didn’t understand
That anything can happen things don’t go as planned
Money problems worries about life
Struggle to keep on track and keep right

Living in my own world till someone burst my bubble
I never understood that being older was so much trouble
Feeling stress of having to get my own things
Remembering all the joys of the old springs

Living in my own world when time of worry never involved me
Always wanting to grow up fast I didn’t realize how sorry I’d be
Always wishing to be an adult always wishing to be free
Now I realize things aren’t always the way they seem
Living in my own world

    it is a tough epiphany to face, this thing we call 'freedom.'
    But it can get better. Facing the reality of it is the first step.

O Love! thou makest all things even
