So starts a new chapter of my life,
less laughter,
more strife.
My shoulder's still wet from my mom's tears
as she slowly realizes
her worst fears.
My dad has stormed off to God knows where,
off to think,
judgment hardly fair.
And I'm just sitting here with pen in hand,
staring blankly.
Oh God, this can't be your promised land.
