What Does it Mean to be 18?
What does it mean to be 18?
What does it mean, I can’t even believe.
Does it mean that I can fight and die?
Does it mean that I can finally ask why?
What does it mean when I missed election year?
What does it mean when all I feel is fear?
Society says I am an adult
Then why do I still feel like I’m not?
I have to figure out money and figure out life
So, why do people act like that is not my right.
When people say I should have a plan
All I can see is where I stand.
Not yet finished but not yet begun
Wishing that I could relate to someone,
Instead of just being in-between.
So on the eve of my eighteenth year
With all of my dreams and all of my fears
I begin to wonder what does it mean to be 18?
