Walking into my future

The dependence begins to fade

I began to learn my ways 

The frustration with my parents seems to never go away

I know they want to keep me 

But I cannot stay much longer 

I must go on to become stronger

Learn to win against the world, the great big monster 

My wings must grow 

It is time I go 

My independence will come soon

An alert from the month of June 

I will be on my own 

Everything you have taught me 

I will use to building a better person 

Now comes the time I open the door 

The door to a better future alone

So if you need me, I will be here 

Right here on my own
