young, uninhibited and free;

i remember when i was eighteen
young, uninhibited and free
without a care in the world
relishing in the beauty of life.

a long time since then
and a long way to have come
in the span of only five years.

much calmer, rational
less spontaneous
growing a calm head on the shoulders
and taking things slow.

is this what it feel like to grow up
to see things in a different light
to be standing on the other spectrum
becoming the responsible adult?

it's a new sensation
somewhat surreal
but empowering at the same time
entering a new stage in life
and having to say goodbye to another.
