At eighteen

At eighteen I was ready to give up my life,
for whatever I wanted.
At eighteen life is least of your concern.
At eighteen there is a lot of madness
and no patience.
The hunger of flight gnaws at you,
demanding you to jump;
to fall and grow wings on the way.
At eighteen you’re raw
and malleable.
At forty you have regrets.

    I’m standing at 18, trying to look past the flurry frenzy, hoping to have no regrets. I relate to this on many different levels. Thank you for this – I needed it (so I would I know I wasn’t losing my own mind).

    You’re welcome. I’m so glad you could relate. (I think regrets are inevitable, but there’s a time for it), at 18 however, there are no rules 🙂
