"Life isn't waiting for the storm to pass, its about learning to dance in the rain"

Everyone grows up hearing of the Party Bus
Its line grows and shrinks as people come and as people go
Where does it take you? No one knows
Its once your older that it comes,
And although it takes some sooner, and others later, some, it takes them not.
People await. They seek for the ticket of time to land in their hands, assigning their departure.
That the one-way ticket, to that embellished Party Bus
People wait in line, eager for the Party Bus to come
Cheerful… accomplished… ignorant
They wave goodbye to their families, homes, memories, childhood
They’re off to a new destination called adulthood
I stand in line. Ticket in hand. Everyone before me has entered the Party Bus,
But me, I'd rather stay

The author's comments:

In our society today, people are made to believe from a young age that the goal in life is to follow in everyone else's footsteps and do what everyone does. Often people are compelled to want to become independent adults as soon as possible, as it often comes with priviges, and is glamorized. People are ignorant of the beautiful things they may have left behind, the memories, by wanting to grow up so fast. People Ive known since I was little, have now taken that route. They want to follow in the same steps as everyone else, and have decided to leave behind thier childhood. But me, Id rather stay a child and live in its wonders forever.
