Only 30

only 30

It’s a pain to be an adult

So many responsibilities

Too many taxes and bills

Folks depending on you

Crushes your young soul

Shatters your fragile hope

Bullies are now colleagues

Parents are now memories

Games- now just a dream

And the world is now sour

Appearance is everything

Rest is now just a fantasy

A lover is now just a boss

And enjoyment long gone

Unicorns are stupid myths

Pixie dust just doesn’t exist

Wonderland’s no longer real

Cookies, hugs and lullabies

Replaced by crucial contracts

No more rolling ‘round in mud

No longer happily prancing

It’s time to stop and grow up…
