Is growing up truly worth it at all?



No teachers to fear,
No exams to appear,
No rules to adhere,
With no tests to clear!
Ah such sweet a reverie we wove,
Of life’s fair little treasure cove!
But alas innocent dreams of yore,
All gone awfully sore,
Is this what we grew up for?
Is this what we grew up for?

Life’s path, our choice
In decisions to rejoice,
No burden to oblige
None but the self as guide
Oh but we knew not,
The other side of life’s knots!
A lightning bolt in verity begot,
Life’s turns not ever in ways it aught,
Is this the brutal scary plot?
Is this the brutal scary plot?

Appease him, appease her,
Hitches and hurt to never deter,
Walking on life’s tight high rope,
With moments of joy, often of hope,
But the seldom fall,
Oh the great big fall, never yet banal!
Brings along the misery appall,
While we just mull,
Is growing up truly worth it at all?
Is growing up truly worth it at all?
