Finally Home

Tue, 11/07/2017 - 21:07 -- Minal.D

So many secret journeys,

Yet it all ended too soon.

You went off to college, and

I'm left to fend off our family

By myself.

 

How can I deal with 

This lonely high school life?

 

I'm only a teenager,

But it feels like I'm 30,

I've matured so much, so fast.

Every birthday passes with a sigh.

 

Now all I can do is

Look forward to your next return home.

 

We have our up and our downs.

I may tease you with names,

And you may steal my clothes.

But just know I am the way I am

Because I love you so.

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
