It was the Thanksgiving of last year
I was with family and peers.
When my uncle came up to me and asked,
"Have you decided on your college yet?"
College? College? I wasn't thinking about college.
I never had a thought in my mind about college.
With a flurry of questions about the future,
What's your Degree?ACT?
Considered the SAT?
As a child, I had a carefree life,
No choices or questions that caused me strife.
Now here I am, interrogated about college
A topic I still have limited knowledge.
I wanted to ignore them and go back to before
But I couldn't, I'm not a child anymore.
Before, I was a kid who never cared a dime
But here I am, working part-time
I wasn't worried about money or grades
But those time are soon beginning to fade
I never had choices that would make such an impact
But now it is time for me to accept the fact:
The life I once had is now a memory in the past
And the future ahead is coming real fast.
