Responsibility

Oftentimes, I am irresponsible because I am young

and there remain more chronicles of my life to be sung.

I act like a child which is not pleasing,

hoping that my youth is not just a passing phase.


There are games that I play that raise eyebrows and sneers

or words that I say that don't belong with my peers.

I try to break free from this puerile mold,

grow up, get out,grow old.


I dance in the twilight of my youth

I run from the sun of adulthood

I cling to the past though it will never last,

I  wish things were simpler right now.


Responsibility is my Damocles sword,

raised over my head by a silver cord.

Someday it will fall,fall,fall. 

Someday it will fall.
