Desperately Seeking Adulthood

Here I am

Desperately seeking adulthood

At twenty-five

You think I'd be all grown-up and refined

Knowing what to do when

The correct decorum

But, I still feel like I'm a kid

Cartoon movies and fantasy books are what I read

Nothing serious

Nothing that gets me anything

When will I grow out of this mentality

That I've been stuck in since I was fiveteen?

Old enough to be drafted

Old enough to drink

Old enough to be married

So you'd think

That I'd stop being childlike

And be a grownup.
