I Guess It's Just Part of Growing Up

Our bones rot and decay 

But not yet for me. 

As I grow older,

I consider my mortality.

Time goes by and we don't care to acknowledge.

Too busy trying to grow up

And ship ourselves of to college,

That we never consider the lives we have rushed. 

Life is only here and now,

It's not over yet.

It's a life lesson that we all should learn, anyhow.

I guess it's just part of growing up.
