In school I learned about english and bullying
Judgement, math, and the flaws of schooling.
But there are some things my teacher didn't tell me
Things that the new me is scared of knowing.
Since I've graduated I have had to learn
That life is full of surprises at every turn.
I went into the real world with a bag of emtpy tricks
Being a kid suddenly sounded like a gift.
There are some things as an adult that make you feel so alone
Paying bills, applying to colleges, and saying goodbye to your home.
These are some of the things I wish I would have known
Like how hard it would be to hear your loved ones voices only over the phone.
These are some thing that my teacher never told me
And it's a big price to pay to be an adult; to be free.
