Sometimes being an adult can suck
but you can't go back
once you become one you're stuck
you have to make decisions
you have to learn quickly from your mistakes
there is no slowing down
there is no calling timeout or asking for a break
Once you become one you set for life
and then you start adding more titles
mother, father, husband, and wife
There is nothing wrong with those titles
but all of them carry some kind of stress
and if you keep adding titles
a person can start to feel compressed
I respect those who can navigate through this
and keep their sanity in tact
being an adult is not all that its crack up to be
and I am not a grumpy man venting to the world
I'm just stating a fact
