My time will come
When I break free from this pressure
When I grab the chance to shine
When I find my peace
Until then, I hold onto my sanity.
Life is buzzing by but there is no content
No spark in my life,
No green light in my future
My body is moving meaninglessly and I wonder,
When do I finally have the chance?
The chance to change my path,
Create history, be my own person,
Be free from everyday nonsense
Away from my misfortunes, stress, and troubles
When is it my time?
To freely make my own decisions
To make lasting memories
To give back to my loved ones
To genuinely smile at life and say,
I’m only trudging through life
Doing everything I can to reach my time
Absorbing nonsense words through my ear
“Not that school”
“This one is less expensive”
“Pay this much, do this, go there”
I’m only a teen
But is it possible to have this much white hair?
Can you believe this is only a portion of my stress?
I sometimes wonder,
Will I have my time?
But I still walk on the path to my time
Whether I’m slouching and crying,
Or marching with my head up,
I will still keep moving forward.
Because I know, through all these adversities,
I WILL reach my time.
My time to smile, laugh, give,
Love, earn, and be sincerely happy.
My time to be proud of who I’ve become after hard work.
My time to look back into the past and say,
“You made it.”
