The choice I have doesn't come easily,
just the thought makes me queasy.
The school where I'll attend next year,
should it be far or near?

Everyone says they know what's best for me.
They let me know what they want me to be.
The choice is mine, but it's so unclear.
My unclear choice is clouded with fear,

for they all know who I'm suppose to be.
It's only because everyone knows what's best for me.
Should I be far or near,
at the school I attend next year?

The thought of all this makes me queasy.
for the choice I have doesn't come easily.

The author's comments:
It's ironic that as a senior you feel like you are finally getting older, ready to make your own decisions. But during my senior year of high school, I've received so much input about what I should do for the rest of your life.
