I (don’t) want to grow up

I (don’t) want change

I (don’t) want responsibility

I (don’t) want to leave everything I know behind

I (don’t) want to look after myself


But I (don’t) want to sit here and watch

as I let

one more sunset

go by without me

The author's comments:

Growing up is weird and awkward and painful, and I've found that I can feel two exact opposite things about the same thing simultaneously.  Which is mind-blowing in and of itself, but also highly disconcerting considering that the future is, you know, fairly difficult to avoid.
