It's been a long day sittin' in here
thinkin about the last few weeks
wonderin what I could've done
Makin up excuses for every last thing

When am I going to grow up
When am I going to accept responsibility
When am I going to just do what needs to be done
When will I act

I see my life just flying on bye
as I sit here not doing anything
I wish I could make it all better
I know that I can't start to fix the wrong

When will I believe in myself
When will I learn to Ride my own ass
When will I just cut the crap
When will I just act

I know what needs to be done
I know what I have to do
I know it's all my fault
I know to much

I guess I should put that knowledge to work

Welcome, Kevin, to Passions.  When you find the answers to your questions, you will, I'm sure, post them. In the meantime, if what you write indicates you are putting off your studying, then I say, "hit the books".

Growing up can be hard no matter the age!! Great poem! I enjoyed this! Welcome to Passions!

And slight is the sting of his trouble
Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~
