Break Free (OctPoWriMo2014)-Day 1

They never said
That adulthood would be this hard
Chains, barriers, brick walls...
It seemed fun when I was young
As a kid, I anxiously waited 
For the day
The hour
The minute
Then it came...
I grew my wings
And like a butterfly I had to fly away
No warning
No preperation for this transformation
It just happened
So here I am
Learning to break free
Break free?
Is this really freedom?
Because if it is
I may want to give it back...

  1. So much to think about! And yes, contrary to the cliche, the grass isn't always greener ... on the other side of childhood.

    1. You can say that again! Adulthood has its perks but it also has some very big and scary down falls.
