The long-awaited time has finally come,
the dreadful point of life for some,
to pursue my future with constant fear,
like in a rundown vehicle unable to steer.
From tiny high school to grand college,
I will need all my earned knowledge,
to someway live on my very own
in the vast unknown.
Leaving my loving family and best friends behind,
for a specific major I must find,
I am all newly grown up now,
but sometimes I feel I do not even know how.
I have been diligently working up to this,
all the time-consuming homework and endless stress I sure will not miss,
the fun memories that will forever last,
the shadow of tremendous responsibility I now must carefully cast.
I think now I am finally ready,
I just have to keep very steady.
Cherish your time while you still can,
before I even knew it I became a man.
