As far as I remember, I’ve always been shy.
I never could directly look people in the eye.
“What am I so afraid of?” I sit and wonder.
Maybe it’s because my self esteem is so far under.
Regardless, life will go on, and I think about that a lot.
How there won’t be anyone asking if you’re “ready or not?”
I’m starting college in the fall
And I’m not sure if I’m ready at all.
As I enter uncharted grounds, I figure I’ll just “fake it ‘till I make it.”
But then reality hits, and I’m just not sure if I can take it
It’s here, fall 2018
And I am no longer considered a teen.
I am a young adult starting college,
Taking the bus to save on the mileage.
New places, different faces.
new failures, more successes.
I still don’t know if I’m completely ready,
but just as long as I keep my mind steady.
I heard the key to growth is continuity,
so let college be my break from insecurity.
