I thought this would be so much easier.
I had no idea what I was in for.
When I volunteered to go to a search-and-rescue training,
I never realized how much responsibility,
Or how much dedication would be needed.
That first day, I was terrified.
What did I just sign up for?!
This is too much stress,
Too much uncertainty.
Too much depends on my performance.
Mistakes can be deadly.
After that day,
I can’t go back to how I was.
I can’t understand how immature,
How naïve I was.
Is this how you become an adult?
Well, it worked for me.
