A big decision
for the rest of my life;
I have to set up for
success or fall into the
frightening depths of failure.
So young, but burdened
with this choice
of who to be and
what to do.
The thoughts swirl in my
mind like a tornado
of mixed feelings determining
the consequences of any choice
I could make.
The rest of my life
falls onto my shoulders alone
as I struggle to find
the path I will make
for myself in the absolutely
normal chaos of life.

This piece is about deciding who you are and who you want to be in your life. It's hard for everyone to make these choices as we get older and move on in every stage of our lives.
