I guess it’s time to grow up,
Someone should have told me it was hard.
I guess it’s time to clean up,
All these childish things I must discard.
Responsibility was something for future me,
Didn’t realise I was already him.
Suspending disbelief to quell maturity,
Because part of me knew reality would be grim.
Kinda difficult to suddenly come of age,
But it’s long overdue.
Yes, I guess I’m already at that stage,
To tell childhood, “I’m through.”
