To Be Grown Up

Written During virtual workshop My Life In A Poem

To be a child means you have free time
And everything is done for you
But you have to go to school
At least you get to see your friends.

To be a grown-up means you have to take care of yourself.
You can do whatever you want,
But you have to pay bills.
You have to do boring stuff
but there are no limits on life.
