When You Grow Up - Poem by Alyssa Lynn

When you grow up you realize that best friends don’t last forever, you realize that there is no escaping second hand smoke, holding your breathe around it, is merely a naive notion. Especially when you live in a home full of smokers, you realize that whether you like it or not you may not be ready for love, you learn that being in college is not the scariest part but instead that the price for education is a lot more than your bank account holds

. When you grow up you don’t realize that as soon as you’re out of high school you’re on your own, and there’s not a single thing you can do about it. Some are more alone than others. The truth is the “real world” is a scary place and it has no issues eating you alive. I can’t help but hope that at least part of me survives….at this rate I honestly can’t tell you what’s going to happen. Looks like nineteen is all grown up and the real world is nothing but a pool full of piranhas waiting to chew me up for dinner.
