Fear Of The Future
I’m going to elementary school today.
Mommy and Daddy said that I should be nice to the other children.
They also said that I have to do all of the boring school work.
I just wanna get it all done so I can go home and play with my toys.
After this I start middle school.
I’m going to middle school today.
I had my mom and dad drop me off early so I could walk to the building.
They told me to stay focused like I don’t already know.
I just want to get through the day without being humiliated.
After this I start high school.
I’m going to high school today.
My parents told me how important finishing my education is.
They are absolutely right, I need to get my diploma.
Because the pressure of getting good grades is driving me crazy.
I just want to graduate.
Wait, what happens after this?!
Should I go to college? If I do, what should I major in?
Should I get a job? How would I even do that?
What do I want to do for a living?!
My parents say that it’s my choice.
But they’ve chosen everything for me already.
What if I make the wrong choice? What if all this school means nothing?
I just want to have all of this figured out.
I guess I’ll just have to see what happens after this.
