Individually Responsible

I am an individual,

Individual person planning,

Planning my next move,

Move to college.

College, then career,

Career until retirement,

Retirement in old age,

Age molded and worn by time,

Time moves on

On the topic of youth,

Youth I will miss,

Miss the days in college,

College that came after,

After my days of planning,

Planning of an individual,

Individual is what I am.

Am I only defined by this?

This defines me:

Me, responsible,

Responsible to make decisions.

Decisions that guide my future,

Future that is unclear

Unclear to see now

Now I wait

Wait and continue planning.

Planning for my future,

Future that belongs to me,

Me, Responsible

Responsible… Am I?

I am responsible.
