I used to walk upon the Earth,
Not knowing what it’d give me.
I yearned to be a grown adult,
Being a child felt belittling.
I used to lie upon fresh-cut grass,
And stare into the clouds.
I thought about what the future’d bring
And did not live in the now.
The moment I took my first SAT,
I had a realization.
I thought about the pressure and
Experienced a visualization.
I became aware that my impending future
Was solely in my grasp.
The rest of my life would be determined by me,
And all I wanted to do was go back.
