Growing Up

Kerringtyn Davis, Sr.High Writer

Growing up

When the first day of school becomes the last
How the years are constantly slipping through our fingertips
Traveling at the speed of sound as if trying to run away from us

Our grades become more important
Our performance more necessary
The increasing feeling of weight on our shoulders
From tests to friends and family

Growing up is hard
Growing up is so, so hard

We are all each an individual and separate entity
We all have our own conflicts and importances
But one thing we all have in common
Is the opportunity for growth

So grow
Grow with the flow
Grow and prosper with strength

Because growing up is hard
But forcing yourself not to – is harder.
