Adulthood

Our teenage dreams,
once vibrant
fragrant
flowers
are now buried
deep
into the barren
ground
as we helplessly
flounder
with the heavy mantle
of responsibility

  1. Whenever I hear a song from my youth. I remember being carefree, dancing with friends. I then wonder, why we have to grow up. I think we need to recapture that as often as possible!

  2. I have worked very hard to keep those dreams alive and occasionally get called selfish for holding onto them. But what is the purpose of life if one does not hold onto their dreams. And I think I am doing a reasonable job starting to make some of them come true

  3. So true… All that on behalf of adulthood… Growing up is a way of making It through social restrictions, somehow… Sending Love and best wishes, dear Nathalie, happy new year ahead, Aquileana 💛🌟😀
