    i dont want to make hard decisions
    i dont want to work all summer
    i dont want to act like an adult

    i dont want these responsibilities
    i dont want things to keep changing
    i dont want my to-do list to get longer

    i dont want my favorite place in the world to get taken away from me
    i dont want to be in the unknown
    i dont want to have this breakdown

    i want someone to help me fix my problems
    i want someone to tell me what i should do
    i want to know what i want to do

    i want to go back to coloring in coloring books
    i want everything to be simple
    i want everything to be easy

    i want to know i wont fail
    i want to know i’ll do great things
    i want to know i’ll be happy

    i want to know it’ll all be ok …..

      I StumbledUpon this poem and it spoke to me as if it were something I have written.

      After I moved out of my childhood home to move on to college, my uncle decided to sell the house, without telling me. My relationship fizzled with my uncle and since I depended on my uncle, I was left to face the world on my own.

      I remember one night in my dorm room when reality hit me. I realized that I would now be the sole provider for myself while grieving the loss of the home I grew up in and was now being ripped out of my hands. I thought, “if only I didn’t wish to grow up so quickly as an adult!” I focused on my school work and making this event as a growing experience.

      Now a Junior in college, I still wish I had my home to go to when things get tough. And I struggle to balance life on my own while my friends have their parents and family to fall back on. But I know I can be proud of being self-sufficient and moving past this.

      I hope who ever wrote this knows that they have the strength to be okay and do great and wonderful things in life. Keep strong and keep going, you’ll make it and find happiness. 🙂
