Teenage Years to Now

I used to think short shirts were cool,
And tight pants were the best.
But since I am older now,
I think I’ll give it a rest.

Tattoos were never an option for me,
Even though I dreamed.
Once I got a fake one,
And my dad almost disowned me.

When I woke up from those teen years,
And realized I was in college.
I desperately needed to grow up,
To gain the right knowledge.

Major brands were never a second thought,
No matter what the cost.
Once I started working,
My obsession with them was lost.
