BECOMING EIGHTEEN
EMMIASKY OJEX

Share this with friends

Now I can go to jail

Have for myself, a bad name

If I take the wrong steps

And follow evil men

 

One that I would carry with me for the rest of life, in shame

One that would follow me till I join my brothers in Hades

I fear for I will soon be leaving the teens

But no worries, for I am still a kid to Him

 

Now I can serve life imprisonment

For murdering a soul whether I did or did not, since I was there

Now I am a man

What will I grow up as?

 

A bad or a good one?

I do not know and can not say what I want

For the world is all wrong

And what they see as good is actually not

 

Now I am a man

What will I grow up as?

 

I am becoming eighteen

I will no longer be known as a teen

But an adult

Who would learn from people and life, all sorts

 

Welcome to the world, son

Say this to me for

all I did in the past was learn

Now we’ve gotta put what we learnt to fend for ourselves

 

In this market of life,

We’ve gotta struggle to not get behind

Life’s gonna move on whether we like it or not

Whether or not we want it to be solved.

 

Now I know no thing,

Yet, I plan to and will learn every thing

All I wish to happen, I will do them

And not like them, complain rather than make wishes real.

 

I am and will always be ME,

May He help me.Amen.
