The Story of My Life

Pressure is all I feel,

Every day and every moment.

The bills just keep stacking up higher and higher.

Friends want to hang out and have fun.

Fun costs money and I have none.

The adult life seemed so awesome

Till I got there and saw the truth.

Growing up sucks and now I see 

What my parents were trying to say to me.

Don't grow up.

Just be a kid.

And enjoy it while you can.
